Move up the blunt arete using a sloper and a couple crimps. Pull your feet onto the main face and throw for the top corner. Feels like it ends too soon.


Wide blunt arete between Welcome to the Top and Pale Gardener


Pads, good landing

We gave this a couple of tries, but it was still dirty and a bit wet. It has some decent features on it, and shouldn't be too hard.

Did this line today after work. As Remo says, it's got some good features. I'm not too good at rating stuff but I would probably lean in the V3 range. Plus or minus a number, as JJ says. Sit start wasn't as fun, so i would say just start wherever. Travis- great work finding and establishing the area-- a really nice addition to the climbing at the park. It's "A Real Cool Hand".

Great problem, got on this one not knowing what it was, def. over way to soon when you hit the lip. Nice work on establishing this pob guys.
