AIRY HIGHBALL!!! I have determined this a V4 - but the book says V3 climb the large dihedral to incuts , then traverse left under the roof to a large pinch. Reach back and right to the horn/jug. Straight-arm and palm the horn to reach a SMALL! incut crimp in the small dihedral left of the hanging arete. Putting your feet up to the horn and stemming onto the slab, make a DELICATE move out to the hanging arete with plenty of air beneath you. Reach to positive lip.


The obvious roof next to the splitter crack.


I would advise a rope, this is extremely airy and after the first couple of moves there is nothing that a pad would protect.

I used a BD #4-5 to protect at the top. There is also this cool anchor at the top that I have used but bring a few runners to avoid rope drag, because the edge is SHARP!
