Southwest Arete


Start with right-handed crimp and left-handed pinch at about chest level on the arete. Move up to a good pinch for the right hand and make a big move to a good, left-handed block. From here make the dicey moves out onto the face via small chicken heads. Beware of grit at the top.


Head toward the Trail Side Boulders but veer west, or left (approx 50 yards before the TSB) across the meadow and through the wash toward the first big boulder visible on the other side of the wash. The problem is located on the southwest side of the boulder.
