4 out of 5 stars Teacup Arete

The crack requires some very balanced moves with hands and arms jammed into the crack. The face at the top once you traverse out left is where it gets really hard though. It looks as if something might have broken off the wall just above the bolt but I am not sure. Over all a good route especially for the crack climb.
