Some areas require a guide.

Description 

This savage crimp line would be four stars if only the holds weren't quite so sharp!

Begin sitting on your choice of two of three heavily chalked crimps. Make a hard move, possibly the crux, up to better holds. From here work your way left through several holds and eventually a long reach. Top out on good but potentially very chossy holds. Beware the huge flake on the right of the topout as it is very hollow sounding.


Location 

See above area description. The obvious line of crimps on the steep arete. The problem itself faces SE so you can't see it until you are on the uphill side.

To descend a fun V0 can be downclimbed on the left side of Guns of Navarone.


Protection 

Lots of pads and an attentive spotter. A fall from up high would be scary with the steep slab behind.

Awesome problem. Not really pg13, a large pad on the slab and a pad on the ground protects it well, you just have to run down the pad on the slab. I fell from pretty high twice and was fine.
