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...

So good (and scary)...Stand start using the right facing flake and move up to another large, but thinner flake. Climb high and straight above the start into much smaller knobs via an interesting, fun undercling move off of the thin horizontal crack seam.Reach the highball top where the heady, scary top move is, which involves a highball, thin, downward facing, horizontal flake/fin.Enjoy....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
