Another unique, unlikely yet beautiful CK route. Begin with funky steming working up a dihedral that slowly peters out. Step up and right onto the arete feature. Carefully pick your way up this on cool balancey holds. I broke the anchor clipping jug completely off in '09 when it was brand new. Somewhat slopey-er now, sorry. The book says 5.10-. I thought this and Elvis Shades seemed to be solid 5.10's.


Left most of the Alexanders Arete routes beginning in the dihedral

Kinda dirty down low, slopey up high - least desirable of routes on this arete. also felt 10+ up top.
