Riding the arete.

Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


If you like arete climbing and crimping, get on this! This has a few sections of hard climbing on perfect stone separated by good holds. It probably would be 4 stars if one or two of the holds weren't so sharp.


Clip the first 2 bolts of Bonehead, then climb up and left on the arete.


9 bolts and an anchor.

Any beta for the crux?

Erik, the best beta I can give is to try it when it is really cold outside, the crimps feel much better. I stayed on the arete the whole time and tried to compress on small crimps and the tiny 2-finger edges. It does require a bit of foot work and some fresh skin as well.
