Description:

Great airy climb up the prominent arete about 100m south of Big Sky. Begin on the face to the right of the arete, then work up and left onto the arete. Zig-zag your way 70 feet up the arete to a lowering station on a small ledge. *Note: A direct start variation, DEATH OF A DINOSAUR (5.10-) presents a nice change of pace as well.

5 out of 5 stars A must do!

Super exposed climb up a beautiful arete. By far one of the prettiest climbs I've ever done. There are great jugs running all over this thing, but because the holds are really good, the protection is a little run out. Prolly about a 12 to 15 foot runnout between the first couple bolts. The grade is more along the lines of a 5.8+ to a 5.9-
