North Arete* D
[Camp below Craig Lloer (before first winter ascent of North Arete), 2 kb]75m, 2 pitches. A great romp on large holds, with nice positions and ample belays. Start just left of the overhanging buttress at a short chimney.
1) 22m. Climb the initial chimney, then easier ground to belay at the quartzy patch.
2) 35m. Romp up the main rib above on beautiful rock to gain a ledge beneath the final steepening.
3) 20m. Follow the crack above the belay and regain the rib proper. Follow this to easier ground. © ROCKFAX
