A great line that should be reserved for a great lead. Balance up the bold arete to a good hold, then move up and left to the thin crack of Death is the Hunter. Fill this with small wires, step back down, then move up and right to the arete. The bold and committing climbing above (crux) is best finished direct.

dmacmorris 25 Aug, 2015 Lead RP Nailed it... After 4 months of not doing any climbing decide that it made sense to work myself back in by leading this bold pitch. Was a little shaky at the start need to get my head game back. (31.9.10). Got back on this epic today and linked it clean, no longer has the two rest but doesn't make it much harder at the bottom tbh, Found it fair for the grade and the crux is pretty foot thin if am being honest, a truly big lead to try.
