Low Hanging Melons.
"George" ascends the slightly...

Description 

Locate a sloping hold above head level, near the diagonal crack on the left end of the wall. Start matching on the sloper, and traverse right along a line of newly cleaned slopers for 15-20' or so until you can turn onto a slab that faces west (behind Arrowhead Arete). Some variations have yet to be cleaned, and eventually this will be a nice wall to warm up on.


Location 

A North-facing wall below Arrowhead Arete, that starts just right of the Hole where George starts out of. Begin at a diagonal crack on the left side of the wall, and traverse right.


Protection 

Pad.

Does George start on jugs and climb into a nice handcrack? If so, I think it would be a good addition to Mountainproject.

George is now Sweet Nectar.... Sit start in crack, up crack to reach left to hole, then proceed up and left on small holds to a nice finishing jug when you really need it!
