Slightly overhanging Arete around forty feet length, located between MYSTERY Climb (8th in sequence on South Wall) and Beginner's Thruch (9th in sequence in Fossum, et al guide-book). Natural arete line that begs to be climbed. Don't use ledges on Thruch. Some loose blocks seem worrisome: handle with care. Sustained angle keeps one's attention at all times. Don't know if I'm FA; no evident signs of previous climbs.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet Areta Seemed So Much Betta

This line seemed a better challenge than the "Mystery Climb" to its left, so I did this the same day, May 6, 2012. Various techniques required: Jams, layback, undercling, crimps, foot-matches, side-to-side switching, and a small but essential Thank-God hold; it's all there.
