BETA PHOTO: The Sleeper V5

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Sit down start on the arete. Climb the left side of the arete. One of the better boulder problems on House Boulder. Both variations share the same sit start, which is grabbing a good pinch (used to be a jug years ago) with your left hand and a flat sloping edge with your right.

By AF standards the left variation is a "soft" V5 - the crux is throwing up and far left for this positive yet small sloping knob. The right variation felt a tad easier so I labeled it as a V4/5. The arete is off - if it's on, then V3. As always, feedback is welcome so that I posted the correct beta!


Sit start on the southeast arete - then out to the face - of House Boulder. Use the tree next to Speedball to shimmy down.
