Drew working the techy arete....


About 2/3 of the way west along the cliffband is a stellar arete with a little spiral design chiseled into the rock. Sit start with right hand in little pocket to right of arete, right hand on whatever feels biggest. Slap up arete to topout.


at ledge, traverse right and down climb easy terrain. Left looks easy but has lots of loose rock. Just to the left is a great warm up hand crack and a finger crack. The right face of the arete is a balancy, technical slab that is fun.

Based on the area description I think the 'petroglyph' is being used facetiously. Sounds like modern graffiti, in which case climb on...
