the scary problem. enjoy
This route is a very scary project that no one I know has had the cojones to actually give a good effort on. It is up the hill a little ways from the Attic Arete and faces southish. Start under the short roof in the crack that splits the back of it. Sit on top a boulder to reach start. As soon as you make the first move the ground drops out below you and as you continue moving left through the crack the ground drops further away and the landing gets even worse. at the end of the crack (where the holds get very small) you have to throw out and left over a bulge to a slopy end. by now you'll be 20 ft. up with your back to the sharp talus below as you try to press out a very difficult looking mantle. Has not been done for obvious reasons and grade is very approximate because no one has done it.
Lots and lots and lots of pads and lots and lots and lots of spotters. very very important.
