Description 

Start sitting in a hole, using a good left and decent right crimp in a crack feature. Stab your way into a good left hand crimp and a vicious right hand quartz razor. A big move to a jug, some tree and boulder avoidance technique, and an easier but tallish topout finish the process. Hard, sharp, and a little squeezed.

Location 

Around the corner and in a hole to the right of Bejesus. Head up the hill behind Nemesis Traverse following vague social trails. Tricky to find unless you know what you're looking for.

Protection 

A couple pads and a spotter are a good idea. There's a sharp block right behind you when you're in the crux.

I believe this is also known as 'Tome's Arete'.

If you're having a hard time finding this boulder, check out the photos and accompanying descriptions that I uploaded under 'Bejesus'. They will help you find both that problem and this problem (since they're on the same boulder).

This isn't Tomes. Tomes is down the hill from the outhouse (now the remains of it) this is actually pretty far from Tomes since its up the mountainside a bit.
