Stand start the NW Arete is a good V5. Sit start makes it V9 "ish"


This is on Tier 2 just west of the large Grey Whale Boulder.


2+ pads, spotter.

Jay, has the sit been done yet? It looks like it could be pretty hard.

Ryan Sylven (Sp?) did the sit @ V9ish.

I did this line from a sit start with right hand on a crimp on the arête and left hand on a sidepull out left at roughly the same height. I called it "Bear Necessities", since the stand didn't really have a name. I think it's about V9. Very fun and heelhook intensive as well.
