A study in balance.


This thing is a monster of a problem. Climb the very slopey arete using some of that LCC slab tech. The crux comes right after getting over "the drip" when trying to get a high foot. The rock is perfect, probably best climbing in the cooler months of fall/winter.


Located at the south-western corner of the boulder next to all the slab problems. Start matched on the huge "drip" about 5 feet up and climb the arete.
Downclimb the tree with all the bark stripped off.


a few pads, a fall from the top will easily make you bottom out if you only have one pad under you. Attentive spotter too, although the falls are pretty straight forward.

A nice variation (a different problem really), is to climb the arete on the right side. About V5, and a bit insecure high up.
