Down and left of "Farewell To Arms" and left of the "Waimea Wall" V0. - Stand or sit start up into juggy arete to slopy lip and highball mantle finish! xcellente! There are at least two ways to finish this arete problem. The rating given here seems soft. More like V5. I'll ask around.

I've never actually topped out this problem, just wanted to add a note about some early ascents. The problem was originally called 'North Shore', and rated as a stout V5.
