|Quarter Inch Master Area
Stand start with a hand on the rounded bump with a crimp on it (at about 7 feet) and pinching the arete. Move up the arete on crimps and slopers to apex of the nose and 'beach whale mantle' yourself to the top. Really good.
This is on the same formation as Quarter Inch Master but on the opposite end. The arete that looks like a shark's head from the west. It is hard to miss.
Pads, spotter. There is a back-breaking boulder in the landing zone, so have an attentive spotter.

Thanks for the info, came close on the sds, but it's burly. I'd figured the stand had been done, it's such a striking feature and the stand isn't that hard, but the sds is where it's at. I'll be back soon.

If Pedro... said it's done, I would believe it.
He and Bernholdtz and a bunch of others pounded out just about everything under 5.14 in the entire county by about 12 years ago. I was breaking into the 5.13 range here at the time, and there was pretty much nothing left for a first ascent, less Lake City.
I will definitely agree on the frustration of climbing and naming at Hartmans though. Some of those problems have waited years, or decades, for second attempts for sure. Great to see some hard climbing going down. I can't imagine a V10 here just due to the type of rock. If it goes, it's definitely something to be proud of.
