Sunset Arete

Description 

As you walk past the Highlands Highball, stay on the trail and walk for a short distance to the next set of rocky outcroppings in the close distance. As you walk up to the outcroppings, look to the left and an inclined, tall, highball face comes into view.
This problem is the closest climbable line to the trail. It follows the arête edge to the first top point along the line and tops out there.
Stand start, using the big hollow jug hand above your head. Heel hook and follow the long jug crack/rail line to the top out. Stay under the incline arête to the top out. t-o is massive and juggy and good.
When looking down and left, the ground appears to drop out below, and gives the illusion of being really high off the deck. Fun!!
