Arete left of turning the century sharing same lower off. 4 bolts. This is a rather contrived line. On the first ascent the arete was climbed in its entirety to the triangular niche. this involved a one armed mantle and was hard. the grade was a conservative estimate. You need blinkers to repeat it this way so just climb what you want. 5 plus if everything is used.

Didn't climb the 6b side however didn't take it as easy as it could have gone on the 6a side. Tried to stay to the middle up the wall as much as possible. Feel 6a+ in relation to other grades in the area. Great mantle cruxy move.

If this is a 6b, then my father's the Pope. After dogging and cheating finally got the crux by mantling off my right thumb, my right foot moving up next to it, left foot on a side hold and my left hand stretched up to a flake undercling that would look small to a mouse to keep it all together. The 6b next door was much more reasonable.
