Penny-Nickel Arête. On April 7 Kep Stone and I climbed a new route on the wall to the left of the Penny-Nickel Arête. The route starts several hundred feet left of the arête and leads up cracks and ramps, angling slightly to the left for seven pitches. We placed about 20 pitons, half of them for aid.
