1 Camp

15 ft left of the arete with "Store" on it. looks like the crux is low, and the moves up the face are on the longer side, but to solid holds.

5.11d Sport
2 *** Store

bullet hole pockets and a crimp or two give way to better holds above and jugfest pumpfest after sidestepping a small roof. A few nimble slab moves here and there keep this arete lively but reasonable. also: stays dry in the rain.
