Arbiter Boulder Rock Climbing
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...

Find the biggie-sized chunk for your left hand and start with a low right hand on the lip. Work up and right, staying well under the arête until you can paw up through easier slopers to the slab finish....[more] Browse More Classics in VA
