** This climb basically goes up the right arete of the large face. Start on the two round pockets (just like in the Traverse), pull up to the smiley face pocket, then the little ledge, then grab a cool hold on the arete above with your right hand, go way up to a big pocket, match hands, reach out left to grab a sloper, grab a heel if you want, match hands again or grab the slopey arete, go up and left to the ledge that is good but faces towards you, so it's hard to get established on. This is a freaky climb, but very cool-- you will be up in the air about 15 or 20 feet, so definitely bring pads (the bushes need to be cut out). I don't know if anyone has done this climb before, but I haven't had the guts to pull the last move yet. The first few moves are V1 or so, but towards the top it is scary and tough, with exposed moves and insecure slopers, and I'm guessing it is around V6 or V7, only because of the move at the top.
