SDS on nice big crimps on both side of arete. Pull up and onto feet near the bottom of arete. Work a bouldery sequence to either deadpoint or just got for it hold on the outter rim. Hold is good and can match both hands. Work final movement to the tip of point and up.


Backside. Obvious overhung arete

I think Apollo's would be the red line. My comment under the route name "Slab of the Wasp" was for the green line, at least that's the line I mentioned doing several years ago.

Thanks! Do you live in SF? Wanna go bouldering sometime?

Additional description: This is the short overhanging arete on the SW corner of the Quarry boulder, top out into the low angle "V" which runs to the top of the boulder.
