Description:

Copied from hongkongclimbing.com: A titillating romp up the prominent knife blade arete just left of the main SOHO crag, this route will get you going with exposure even though the overall angle is gentle. Access from a steep trail with fixed rope on far left side of prelude slab. Pitch 1: 40 feet Start on the easy slab tending right to pick up the very base of the arete. Follow this up to belay. Pitch 2 91 feet Nowhere to hide or get lost now as you follow the arete looking for help on either side as needed.

Descent Options:

Abseil down the right side to SOHO left anchor.
