The striking face to the right of Lightning Rod Arete. Lean in from the detached boulder and enjoy a few bolts of fun climbing before the holds start shrinking. Choose carefully as you execute a series of intriguing moves on smaller holds (and possibly get in touch with your inner flying squirrel), before enjoying the final romp to the chains.
