BETA PHOTO: The Other Northwest Arete. Note: by my eye, both ...


Climb the more rounded arete 5 or so feet from the heavily featured arete. There are several ways of doing it, but all involve nice, delicate face moves up less than vertical rock.

The grade is a generalization and line dependent.


There are sort of two northwest aretes on Little Agassiz rock. One is heavily featured and closest to the nearby smaller quarried boulder, the other is to the right and more rounded. This is the latter arete.


Pads and spotter. This is highball boulder problem. It can also be TRed off a single glue-in at the top.
