Comments: I am not sure what that is for, it certainly seems there could be a direct start to the arete!

Comments: The climb that goes up the arete starts as for 'Jon's Arete' and after hitting the good hold that marks the end of the crux on Jon's, it busts right and heads up the arete. I don't think it has a name, its supposed to be in the v9-v10 range I believe, it really needs some cleaning before it is climbable.

The route that climbs the edges to the left s called Slash, i believe it goes at v6.

Comments: The left side with all the curved flakes looks really cool! and the face to the left of that seems to have a couple possible lines in store!

Comments: I have tried to pull that flake out multiple times over the last few years, with no success. Maybe the freeze thaw this year has finally made it possible, just be very careful as the landing area is very high traffic! Be best to have people keeping the walkway blocked while you pull it.

Comments: Walked up and took a look at this today. It looks pretty cool, I didn't give it any tries. If the sharp rock gets pulled out of the ground it would make the start a lot less awkward. Looking forward to climbing this rig.

Comments: I do the kneebar everytime I climb the route. Its right after the crux of the route and affords a nice relaxing no hands rest! Plus kneebars are just simply fun :)

Comments: Matt, for me I always find the holds on this route are tricky and interesting. Its all about which holds you use. There are a lot of options but not all are good.

Comments: You can see the old bolts still sticking out to the right of this boulder problem. I don't ever remember seeing a second set of holes. I haven't looked for them either though.

Comments: It would be nice for this to receive a description. Its a good boulder problem and a very frequently climbed line. 2-3 stars, surprised to see someone gave this the bomb...
