A worthwhile traverse of the Arkenstone. Start up the wide cracks at the far left hand end of the buttress before traversing rightwards above the crux of Pippin to join the sloping ledges of Disaster Area. Move around the crack of Esgaroth and to its post-crux Jug, where interesting moves across the slab reach the Crack and tree. Continue above before trending leftwards along the tree routes and finish.
