The crux is the upper half. Climb easily up to double sidepulls, left hand on a rounded one on the arete. Now figure out how to get to and use the pockets on the upper face, the only one that is really any good is the lower right one. As an added bonus the top is nice and rounded so not going out of control for the lip as a bail out. This is actually one of the harder top outs on the boulder and the landing as it is now is not very forgiving.


The NW arete climbed from the right. Above a poorly cut down tree that leaves a terrible stump in the middle of the landing area.


Pads and spotter.

If someone actually cuts the stump down even with the ground the landing would be greatly improved.

Good news. I took out the stump yesterday! This is a very nice V3 with a very nice landing now to boot.
