Located just uphill and behind a tree from the B1 traverse at the Main Area. Start the right arching arete by jumping to a good sidepull (V5) or try the harder standing start. A commiting mantle finishes this classic.

Crux start. Alot of beta on this climb states that its a dynamic start, but can be done statically as well. If you use a left heel hook around the arete, you can pull up and snatch the gaston. Continue work up the arete and get ready for the mantle top out.

Probably the most amazing rout I've ever climbed. More satisfaction than streetcar named desire in JT. I did the stand-up start, many many tries. It's definetely the crux. Once you grab the hold on the arete, match and dyno to the top. Then mantle out (not too extreme, a little high). It's a beautiful problem. We should clean also the right arete, that sounds a lot harder!
