An intimidating pitch on compact rock. The gear is spaced and only just adequate. Take plenty of small wires. Start on a raised ledge just right of the arete. Photo on page 131.
22m. Climb the sustained wall right of the arete to better small holds that lead left to the arete itself and a spike runner. Progress to the overlap above, step up, and move left, past a peg, to the base of a very shallow depression. Sustained climbing past a couple of good small nut placements gains another peg. Pass this on the right and push on to the top not far above.
