5 out of 5 stars Great exposure

This was super fun. Went up arete. Been told that is 5.8. It's uber heady 5.8 too. Not easy for the 2nd either, since the anchor is to the right of the arete and would be a tiny, safe swing, but still heady!

Not sure where the 5.7/5.6 finish is. It sure is not on the front side of the feature that faces the highway. That seems to be the 5.8 finish.
