Climber taking down the Witchnose Arete, 5.11a/b

Description 

Awesome pocket pulling with big ledges when they are needed. This route boasts a tricky series of moves and a sweet roof pull that requires a bit of strategy and beta. Hint: Grab the flake on the left!

This might not be the hardest 5.11 in the area but it is a hellava fun climb. If you have the strength to keep going this route has a high send-ability factor because the eleven climbing is pretty much over after the roof pull.

A great follow-up climb if you got lucky on Lucky Strike or a great warm-up for Electric Sex because of the steep, powerful climbing you will encounter while working your way up this sexy arete.

Location 

After you do Lucky Strike, skip the route to the immediate right and move over to the next bolt line.

Witchnose arete starts up the hill a bit and has a very noticable triangular roof towards its top.

Protection 

8 bolts. Closed shut anchors.
