Getting started on the arete.


The Shacks' version of Cocaine Corner in Camp 4!! Vodka Arete is one of my personal favorites- though I've never sent the f*****. This is the curving, southeast arete that gets harder the higher you go.

It can be done as a sit or stand start at roughly the same grade, but I recommend the sit start- it adds a cool sequence to get established on the arete.


This is on The Ridge. It is easy to spot when walking West from Lisenby Roof or Out and Back.

The holds on this arete are face melters! Amazingly texturized slopers! V5+ for sure, so much fun I had to climb it many times.
