  • Description 

    This is one of the cleanest most striking aretes I've seen. The route is about steep sustained knob crimping, pinching, and high stepping.

    There's a thin move down low but the real deal is endurance for the whole thing. Run lots of laps on the Cottage Domes before heading up here.


    Climb the first 2 pitches of the Yawn. After the squeeze, belay then bust out left to the arete.


    Gear for the Yawn approach. Bolts for the arete.
