Starts above Double Exposure. The Black Arete is probably on the best quality rock on the entire WC, but due to its lack of gear, it doesn't get done very often. Don't be frightened. Although the crux 5.8 move is protected by a questionable piece, after that its immaculate varnished bullet hard sandstone edges to the top. Natural anchor consisting of a couple hand pieces.
