Aaron Miller on the juggy arete.


Balance and crimps and side pulls get you off the ground and into a very fun series of big pockets. The crux follows quickly after the second bolt. The route is broken up by a big ledge at 3/4 height, and a few more moves of decent climbing get you to the anchors.


Far right of the Hidden Tower wall, just about ten feet from the end. The route follows an obvious blunt arete.

A really fun route with some amazing holds on it. Before you rope up, take a good look at the holds down low--there are some blind reaches/throws. The first clip is balancy/tricky so you want to stick clip it (or maybe even the second bolt.) Cool and airy finish.

For some additional climbing, climb this route to the anchors, then roll over the lip to the right and finish on Concealed Crustose. Use a 60m rope for this.
