Climbing Area Index / Square Ledge / Thriller Arete (5.10  or 5.10c)
Thriller Arete
Directions:  Walk right and just uphill of the main face. Look for the obvious arete on the left face of The Chimney.
Description: If you're into arete climbing, this one's for you. Great climbing on good holds, if you can hang on. Kind of like Rumney, only with gear!
    Pitch 1: Climb the face to a stance on a ledge just left of the arete. Climb the arete to a large hold where you can move back left to the slab (10a). If you continue up and right on the face to the top it's 10c!

Gear: standard rack with nuts and small cams
Descent: walk off
History:  June 1990 - Bob Parrott, Rob Adair
