The Arete** E3 5b
[Evening Arete., 4 kb]12m. Nice positive climbing up the right arete of Big Corner. Climb directly up to the ledge, and continue up the left side of the arete, crux, to better finishing holds. Traditionally a satisfying solo.

Best looking line in the area? Did two clean top ropes which helped me refine the one crux move. Very horrific landing if anything goes wrong, so be certain before attemping.

Should have lead it really but lack of gear not appealing, lovely moves though on good rock, well worth doing, E3 5b pretty much sums it up....almost got pregnant lady up this one, but the bump was making high steps hard!

would love to go back and lead it.....although i think the term solo would be more appropraite due to the distinct lack of gear!!
