Working the sit start of Buckets of Blood Arete.

Add Photo Add Comment    Printer View

Description 

Perhaps the best steep climb at Carderock, the glorious overhanging arete on the back side of the X-face beckons the passing climber with its siren song of incut crimps on the right and heel-hooks on the left. An optional sit-start increases the difficulty and makes the top moves quite strenuous.


Location 

This climb is about 50 feet left of beginners crack and just a bit left of the dark, scary chimney.


Protection 

The large block at the top of X-face can be used for a toprope anchor. The climb is sometimes done as a highball boulder problem, but it should be noted that the quartz crystals offer much less friction than you might prefer at that height.
