5 out of 5 stars Right Edge of Arete

Me and some friends tried climbing the actual corner I made it up to about 25-30ft and ran out of arm strength but hey I am new at this. The refreshing thing is a guy who is experienced (although he wasn't fresh at the time) had a very hard time and couldn't make it either. I will be back this one is a nice challenge to stay within a couple of feet of the corner the whole way up.

4 out of 5 stars Arete

Good climb, good scenery, and gotta love that it's less than 3mi away as the crow flies.

4 out of 5 stars Neat route

Pretty straight forward. More difficult at the top third, but a lot of fun. Beautiful area, and picturesque view at the top (minus the glaring casino, of course).

5 out of 5 stars So much fun

There are a lot of routes here that aren't recorded, but I believe this is the one we did. It was great! Lots of little holds, with a couple bigger holds.
