Start low and make a series of moves through the really cool featured, tufa-like holds up to two very small, sloping crimps, then rock up and over and make a few more dainty moves to top out.


Go up back along the ridge to the left after coming up the hill and to Vodka Arete.

Badass boulder problem! Honestly I would consider this line to be more "pure" than Woman King. The top out is by far the icing on the cake. I would suggest V6 for the grade though.

Great problem. Surprised this obvious gem only got done recently.

The holds on this rig were scrubbed more than 15 years ago. As with most things around here, if you're not climbing V8 or harder or did some serious landing excivation, it's most likely been done.
