Description 

Arbiter: "the power to judge or ordain at will"... This boulder has a surplus of that kind of power. Chalk up at the base of the Arbiter without an ironclad highball head game and you can enjoy a full day of non-stop pad testing.


The Arbiter is a huge, looming, imposing highball boulder. Most of the front right of the boulder is really tall, leaning to slab at the top. The front left is in-cut over a sloped "patio"... The front right is where the couple established lines are, and they both are quality, super scary highballs. One problem being a "Really Highball" with a low crux, and the other a standard 25 foot highball with a heady crux top out. Bring your head game for the Arbiter Boulder...

Really Highball... Tyler sent this monster on 22 November 2010, and I would have to say that I was just as scared spotting him as he was puling through it. Nice job Mr. Christensen.Find the tiny crystal knob 7 feet up from the ground. This is the starting left hand. From this knob, stand start and climb the face directly up to the long horizontal crack line/seam. At the seam trend slightly right to the long right hand side-pull above the seam. Gain the side-pull (way off the deck) and continue t...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
