This is not the pinball arete.

This might be a V6 not sure on the name but Pinball is way right when you enter Burma road and is in a tight hole like area.

It sounds like there are two pinball aretes. I think the name fits both of them by the looks of things. I don't like the pinball arete in the pit.........bad bad memories....

I agree, I changed the name to "Pinball Arete" from Remo's advice. Remo is full of shit. "Pinball Arete" is in "The Pit". I'll fix this.

Yea, Steve you took a whipper from the top of the real Pinball once. If I recall correctly Kelsen had just asked you if you were secure. LOL!

I also wiped out in the pit the other day, damn slippery shit!

This thing looked sick! Come fall, I'll be back here with a crew and some brushes, clean the crap out of this place, and send things! Things I say!

This looks cool but wouldn't you be lay-backing right over that shelf on the right?

It didn't look like the shelf would come into play that much on it. The shelf grows progressively larger out to the right, but is pretty minimal under the arete.

This might be the best climb at Burma! Tall, sustained and committing with some really cool movement. She's all clean and chalked for the time being, so get on her. Shelf on the right never came into play.

I have also heard this has been called pinball arete. Here is a link to a video to get people to try this.

Nice vid! This climb does look really good. I guess I was wrong about the shelf too; it seemed far away in the video.
