Third time up S.E. Arete, pitch 3 may take some creativity and probably turns a lot of people away. I believe the best way to do the route is to do a backpack to the saddle, climb the next day after a good sleep (aclimate) and stroll back down on the third day, then lunch at a diner at Robles Junction. Beware of the rap down the Forbes Route! If you miss any rap stations you will rap down to far and the hike out will be memorable, especially at night with dry cork like dust from the oak leaves burning your eyes for hours. The best beta I can offer is do the Forbes Route to understand the terrain so you have a pleasant journey. Once you understand most senarios, a party of two can summit & rap with one 60 meter rope. This mountain offers a true wilderness experience.
