Matthew Bashista sending Testicles. Ernie spotti...
Testicles climbs the blunt right arete on the main face of the Warm Up boulder of the Prow area. Begin by pulling onto a large foot with a small left crimp and the right hand squeezing nothing around the blunt corner. A right heel in this same blank, chalky spot will allow both hands to move into a crimpy seam around the left side of the feature. Delicately transition to slopers at the lip, then snag the incut hold. Pull onto the slab and topout. You may want to scope the topout slab before trying. A cold weather problem.
Testicles is a Gretna classic with great movement. It can be frustrating until one figures out the subtleties. I believe that name may stem from a combination of testicles and Hercules.

Pads and a spotter. There is a rock around the right that I've landed on precariously before.
