Cowboy Up, AKA: The Tall Arete
|801 page views|
Hard move to start right on the arete, pinching with your left and right on a sloping 3 finger edge/knob thing just above. Pull on with not so great feet and make a long move up with the right to gaston a better part of the arete. Match and repeat, except this time you are going for the angle change and trying to get a false grip. Reach up one more time to a pretty good spot on the arete and get your foot up into the area of the angle change. The difficulties ease once the arete turns vertical but your feet are 10' off the deck.
The pretty uphill arete on the trail side of the boulder.
