Crimps on the East Side

Seth Calkins on the East Face of the Hone Stone.
This is the very crimpy line amongst the aspens on the east side of the boulder. It is a very direct line with a standing start on 2 good crimps then straight up on credit card edges and small feet. The grade is a pure guess, give or take a few either way.
1-2 pads, spotter.

This line is more of a V4-5. Definitely not a V 7-8. It isn't harder than Atomic Tick Fever on the opposite side.

Probably V5. Definitely not in the ballpark of the climbs on the other side. Last time I climbed this we had to clean moss off all over the face. Not sure how much it gets cleaned anymore.

Definitely a V5 for the on-sight attempt...V4 after you have done it enough.... There is a fun, non-descript line to the left called the Blunt Arete which is a quite challenging V7, and the line to the right is still waiting...as far as I know.
