Beautiful smooth arête almost dyke like. Good body movement and a little bit of lay backing get you off the ground. Work the dyked arête to the top about 5 ft from the top cut right and finish on face to a tricky mantle.As you go higher it gets tricky. Great Problem! Has to be in the top 3 arête boulder problems in The Hills.


NW arête tall beautiful and obvious when looking at the boulder.

It seemed more natural and exciting to finish straight up the arête. Great problem.
