This is the arete located just to the left (north) of of the right facing dihedral of the Altered States slab (which has the route Altered States on it). Pass several bolts following the elbow shaped arete edge to a two bolt belay which can be rappeled with one rope as can now be done on the Altered States Slab. You can continue up two more bolted pitches which are good fun. Feels like a longish route. II, 5.9

4 out of 5 stars Fun

I think it's an R due to the first pitch slab - easy climbing but you certainly can't fall before the rap station.
