Climb up arete on small holds to jugs up high. EZ's guide says "to ledge at 17 feet and off" but the jugs start ~17 feet. It's perhaps 25 feet to the top. You can downclimb or traverse off at the jugs or top it out, I guess.


Arete ~30 feet left of Watermarks 5.8 on the watermarks wall.

Good post Chris. I declined to add this problem before because it looked more like a route. Psyched to go back and try it.

Yeah it really would perhaps be wiser to put a TR on it, it's actually pretty fun though. I climbed up and jumped off many times before committing to the move to the jug(s). After hitting the jugs and contemplating the topout, in the end I downclimbed it. One could top it out if one were so inclined, but not me, and especially not alone with one pad.
