Sunset Arete 5.9
« on: November 05, 2011, 05:09:51 PM »
Deer Leap VT

Sunset Arete 5.9 climbs the arette just left of West gully.
Start at the low point of the West face of top Rock. Climb a short steep face past a bolt to an overlap, escape left around the overlap and up to a stance below another steep face just Left of the arete . climb face past bolt Crux and continue up the arette to the very top of  top rock and a good gear anchor. 70ft
 light rack to 3"
FA Nick Goldsmith roped solo 11-4-11

Ye ha! My first ever real solo lead with the gri gri where I felt ok about letting it do it's thing and  did not back tie every 3 feet defeating the entire purpose of the gri gri ;D
