Is it true that the original start is on the right side of the arete? Some guys climb the faint crack just left of the arete to start.

But starting on the polished jugs for This Aint No Party is more fun than either, with the rest of the climb at .12d? If you're like me and want to work this but haven't redpointed, going left is a lot less taxing if you still need to figure out the rest.

First two bolts (just right of the arete)involve a V7ish boulder problem. Mantle and pull up to the super cool, overhanging arete (12c/d from mantle).

Awesome route with varied movement. Not greasy, just get on it in good conditions. Solid for the grade. Quality diminished somewhat by the rest ledge, but I think the rock and nature of the climbing still make it one of the best around. Bring your PE for the RP crux up high!

Anyone have info on the bolted line on the right side of the arete?
