Below and to the L (looking downhill) from Bigass Bovine Style is a big face with a prominent arete. On the L-hand side of the face, climb the obvious line on good edges.

FA: Sarah Jacob, 2000

The obvious tall right- leaning arete. Technically easy for the grade, but a little comitting with a somewhat slopey landing. Stand start at arete proper with right hand on high pinch (smallish edge on arete can be used for right hand instead if preferred). Tricky move up and left to good sidepull, then follow the obvious vertical seam using edges along the way.

Starts around to the R of the arete sitting on a boulder. Start matched on a big diagonal edge. Crank up a crimp ladder to flat tops, then traverse R and step off.

FA: Paul Martin, 2000

Sit-start on the R hand side of the flake. Traverse L until you can slap up to slopers on the top of the boulder. Traverse L again to jugs and top out.

FA: Paul Martin, 2000

Sit start at edges, crimp your way to the top and step off.

Climb the crack to a heinous topout.
