Slappin the edge

For me, this is the best face climb here.

Okay, I just led some 10c at Donner and came here and TR'd this. Very sketch for the grade. I kept thinking that I'd fall at any time. Very thin and for my money harder than 10c. The mantle was fine, but the face above was waaay thin.... at least that's what I thought.

Hey DJ, did you use the arête for the upper face? I'd say if not it's definitely 10d, but if you climb with your left hand on the arête it brings the grade down to 10c. See ya out there!
