Emily on Classic Curl


Starts on reddish "oysters" - which are thin, positive edges - and works up and slightly right to a monster jug at the base of a scoop. Mantle/lieback up into the scoop and then stem your way to a high topout and the flat summit. The easiest descent is to downclimb the southwest arete and then step off (or jump) onto the flat boulder adjacent to this boulder.

This is an excellent problem for the grade with fun movement and just enough height to make it somewhat exhilarating.


Right side of the north face, just right of Black Velvet (V3)
