Climb directly under the arête that is directly underneath the large overhanging tree. The crux is near the bottom when trying to pull the overhang. Then it is followed by a super balancy traverse to gain the arete. Once on the arete the climbing eases to about 5.9- or so. Until the top move. Then there is another tough move.

Descent Options:

Rappel off of the cold shuts. Possibly a walk off the back, but I never explored this option.

5 out of 5 stars You're Under Arete

Amazing balancy crimpy climb! I loved it, and am stoked that I made it up! We climbed up over the overhang. No traversing onto the route from Oscar's crack. That's just not fair!
