In the Beginning.


This is the northeast arete on the cube, just east of Breashears crack II. Start on a good undercling for the left hand and an alright pinch on the arete for the right hand, find some feet, and stand up. Once you hit the next ledge from here, the problem eases up quite a bit, but with fun movement up good ledges all the way to the top. Moves somewhat left off of the arete.


A pad would be nice for the topout

Low crux. Jugs at the top, don't be intimidated.

Felt harder than V1 to me, but I'm not really a boulderer, so my opinion ain't worth much.

This may be an easy problem, but it is so much fun. Great climb to do a few laps on as a warm-up.
