This problem starts on the cool undercling feature about head height on the arete and continues up though interesting holds. The challenge is trying to establish yourself on the upper section via intermediate moves on bad slopers in order to grab the good right-handed ledge and top out.

Very good rock and unique holds/movement.

This is called "The Cure". I think it is one of the better aretes in the foothills. I am pretty sure John Kear got the FA.

Yeah I agree, this is a really good problem. One of the better for the grade in the Foothills that I've done.
