<< Mike's Mistake < Clarion | Dexter > The Arete >>
Pleasant, popular and polished climbing with three good pitches. Start below a small broken rib at 4m, just right of Clarion..
1) 4b, 22m. Climb the broken pillar to good gear in the break at the first set of overhangs. Step over the overhang onto a large, slick foothold and move up the short slab to the base of a narrow corner. Follow the corner to a bulging wall above and devise an exit right to a tree belay..
2) 4b, 10m. Move left and up to a football sized hold. Step left and pull on to a slab. Traverse left to a small tree and nut belays..
3) 4a, 20m. Finish up the wide rounded crack of Clarion's second pitch.
