  • Description 

    A classic to end all classics! High and spicey, Breadloaf arete is a must-do problem at Governor Stable. Start low on the arete of the giant boulder that looks like a breadloaf i guess, and make delicate moves toward an exciting finish. Not to be missed!


    Past the warm up area, take the first trail to your right and follow it to the top of the hill.


    A few pads. The landing's okay but the top-out is high

    A key crimp broke near the top of this thing in Mid-January. No definitive word on whether or not it made it harder, but it almost certainly made this already scary problem even scarier.

    No harder after the chip break. A little headier maybe. Just makes you use the already good feet more precisely.

    I think this is the best of the old school B1's at the Stable. The top is heady every time I am up there. The bottom crimp crux is plain strenuous without perfect control and tension. A good edge on the shoes seemed to help.
