Pinching Pebbles on the Appetizer Arete.

Description 

Sit/squat down in the hole under the arete, left hand on the arete and right on a pebble crimp. Work up the slopers on the arete and aim for an obvious 2 pebble pinch for your right hand on the face near the top. Hold the compression, hope none of the pebbles underfoot break, and slap the good slopers at the lip.

2-3 pads needed!

Good work Nick!

Went out and did this thing yesterday. Started sit/squat down in the hole under the arete with a left hand on the arete and right on a pebble crimp. Work up the slopers on the arete and aim for an obvious 2 pebble pinch for your right hand on the face near the top. Hold the compression, hope none of the pebbles underfoot break, and slap the good slopers at the lip.

Probably want a good spot and at least 2-3 good sized pads to fill holes and pad the rock next to the arete.
