<< None < Kirkus's Route | Central Ridge > North Arete >>
A nice route, making the most of the pleasant rock on the rib, and avoids the vegetation in the grooves. Start at a detached block leaning against the main crag.
1) 26m. Climb up over the block and follow a chimney to a tricky move left to a ledge. Scramble back and left to belay in the corner.
2) 20m. Move right to gain the rib proper and follow it until a belay in the right-hand groove can be reached.
3) 30m. Gain the arete on the left which is followed to a groove and then the top.
