Climb slabby arete 15m left of Crystal Ether and big log against the cliff. A tricky start leads to more smeary and balancy slab work on the arete. Balance and layback seam to top of arete then move left to huge huece and thin easy flake to anchors (shared with face climb to left)

Descent Options:

Rap or lower from anchors.... or continue up dirty gully above and right of anchor and descend trail to the right

4 out of 5 stars Awesome Crack

So I climbed off to the right a bit on this route. Just to the right of the arete. Theres a big crack along the arete that I climbed that was awesome! This crack was a pretty hard climb and definitely needed a clean but was still great. The first part was easy but then there was a tricky overhang section in the middle of the crack, I spent the most time there. Awesome climb.

I finally lead this route after waiting all winter for it to dry.... I did it clean on my first lead attempt... a fun insecure climb
