Frank cruising through Feels Like Grit

Description 

Climb the arete using some face holds on the roadside face of the K-Town boulder. A super softy at V8 but classic nonetheless.

Location 

The obvious arete on the K-Town boulder.

Super cool problem. There's a bit of leavitation involved in the topout, I think.

Feels V5 or easier.

I did it without the arete using a sidepull out right. Stood up on a good left foot and grabbed a slot right before the topout with my left hand I believe. Felt pretty hard, but easier than climbing the arete. Kind of hard to call it the same climb though...

Will's comment is probably the most accurate. I've seen plenty of really strong climbers struggle on this one, including ones who are quite good at slabs. This problem definitely favors taller climbers, as they can much more easily reach the better holds up high from better (if still small) feet.

Having climbed hard slabs all over the US and the world, I feel like this climb is pretty comparable to v7's or v8's that I've climbed elsewhere. Perhaps for taller climbers it feels significantly easier, but I'm not one of those so I don't know.

Either way, it's a beautiful feature and a cool line that is definitely worth climbing!! Such a great setting as well.
