The sharp crimps before the committing topout.

Description 

Arete just right of Science Friction with the bad landing. Good climbing and a little dicey.

Location 

Climb the obvious arete on the science friction boulder from a sitstart.

Protection 

More pads the better, tiered landing. A good spot.

Ian it's on youtube, naturally. Close to a million views so far. I kind of crouched down to start, seemed like the most obvious start holds. I did in March 2010 but as you suggest who knows if anyone did it long before that. I do remember being alone and frightened making the move to the lip. Anyway I deleted my entry, we'll go with this one.

Ok. We'll give you this one Chris. Pretty proud that you did this by yourself!
