BC working the line.


This is the problem that is being referred to as the middle problem in the photos. The crux is a committing deadpoint/jump near the top. Some say it's better than Big Air, but Big Air was the first problem on the boulder.

We had always refered to this as the Left Arete not knowing the name or if the FA had ever given it one, this was in the late '90s.

In the Colorado bouldering book by Horan, this is labeled as V2, which I think it more accurate.

Benningfield calls it a V4 in his guide, but I definitely sent it quicker than I do most 4s. Regardless, it's an awesome line!!
