The best arete in So Ill. Start on the low jug all the way to the right part of the giant double arete boulder that faces the main cliff. Climb/traverse the super slopey arete until it meets with arete number 2 and top put. Topping out early (like it was done in the past) takes the grade down a couple full number grades.

5 out of 5 stars one of the best problems in so ill.

Took me about 40 tries over two years to link this beautiful problem. Most "Locals" do not even know where this crag is, this is one of illinois best kept secrets!
