An even line up the arete, with some interesting moves out and around at the top. Anchors angle the rope over an edge, so extend the sling if you're going to tr.

Rappel off anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting climb - felt kinda trady (a good thing!)

Nice flakes and finger cracks make this baby enjoyable. Some dirty ledges.

4 out of 5 stars These gatineau 5.8s are tough!

After failing to lead this, did it on top-rope, with some struggling.

I got stuck going the wrong way on this, had to take a second shot. It\'s a nice move from a sidepull up around the arete, deeper than you\'d think.
