The obvious tall arete on the east side of the boulder. It used to have a big pole vault pit underneath it for a crash pad, which is sadly gone now. I don't have any pictures, but there are some really good ones here:

Scary going for the final toss to the lip!


Now you need a nice stack of pads and spotters

Climbed 5 star arrĂȘt today for the first time since the break. It was baking hot, but felt a bit harder, sad to see that beautiful hold go.
