Tons of fun

I don't like bouldering very much but even I can admit this problem is really fun. Start up the arete using the drill scars and an occasional left foot smear or right foot heel hook. This problem isn't very tricky or sequential; it's just a matter of working your way up and daring to go higher and higher. The topout is an airy and exciting mantle. As soon as you get on top you'll want to go do it again!
Up the obvious east arete on the south boulder. Directly to the right of Shot Hole Arete (V8).
Crash pad. The ground is sloping and the climb moves out and left, so you'll probably want a spotter to move the pad as you go.

Good hands; you keep hoping for a left foot on the face, but you never really get one. Juggy topout, so don't let go cause it's pretty high.
