A snaking line featuring exposed positions and very steep climbing. Start 2m right of the base of the arete.
25m. Powerful moves on slopers, past a bolt, lead to an overhung niche on the arete. Pull directly out of the niche and climb past another bolt to beneath more steep ground. Traverse left to a spike on the arete. Continue up the arete before making a fingery move left to positive holds and a lower-off just above.

Powerful start! Once passed though, the rest is nice and steady with good wire placements. Not a good warm up though, unless you have arms like a gorilla.
