We had to up the the full L-R traverse, well, traverse to where you go up the right start route at least, and then continue all the way back to the left to do the arete, joining at about the heel hook/undercling move. Do the finish with THAT PUMP on yer forearms! Yes you can lead it..."toprope" the traverse with the first bolt clipped, if you plan your rope movement and belayer position (back to left a bit, then step in as climber gets up to the first level over the lip) carefully, it works.

Descent Options:

lower or walk either side

5 out of 5 stars Couldn't resist

Not that anyone would come all the way here to do this, but for those dorks of us who only have an hour of daylight after work and this is 10 minutes away...and there's enough here to work the old tendons into oblivion if you are us dorks.
