Working on Slip and Slide.


Sit start and work with the left hand up the face and crack and right up the arete. Tricky topout through the little offwidth crack is the crux. Chicken-wing the crack and find a good spot on the slopper to gain access to the top.

I call this "Slip and Slide" because there is only about 2.5 feet of path behind you and then a slanted hill, so if you pop off from the top you might roll down the hill.


Start with the right hand on the arete and left hand on the face and crack.

Walk off back of boulder.


Pad and spotter. Spotter will keep you from rolling down the hill.
