5 out of 5 stars Love this Arete

So far this red sandstone arete is one of the most beautiful routes I've climbed. Do Spine Tingler Direct and don't use the dihederal to the right for a bouldery start 12.a

4 out of 5 stars Wasted

When i got on this thing it was in the afternoon sun about 90 degrease out! The old guidebook listed it as a 5.11b/c I think but it is for sure harder. I found the crux to be the 2nd clip. Moving above that to the overhand wasn't that bad. I have yet to revisit it.

4 out of 5 stars Spine Tingler

I felt like the crux was on the lower section, moving up to the roof on strange, technical arete moves. Very fun!
