Mike B anticipating the delicate move to the arete...


Begin in the horizontal break with 2 hand jams and climb up and out the bulge following the arete to the top. Looks kind of highball but is actually very secure near the exit. Classic.

Actual name and FA info???


Two or three crash pads fill the uneven ground nicely.

V5? Seems a bit overrated for this climb, but the description lacks any indication that the toe hook on the NorthWest face of this boulder was used (bomber), or the crimp on the same face which begs to be held, also it may be an Ape index dependent climb (I have huge wingspan). This problem offers some of the coolest bouldering movement I've enjoyed!

Agreed: not V5, but beautiful moves. After initial lunge to the only non-bomber hold low on the arete, obvious toe hook locks in the stretch to ridiculously nice crimp rail midway, and cake walk up and over.
