Description 

SDS on big edges and go more or less straight up. The topout can be tricky for some.

Location 

downstream from the "Rail" (also called the Angler) through the first patch of trees. There are many V0-V2s on the north face and Kelly's Arete is the obvious line on the eastern most edge of the boulder.

Protection 

crashpads and some spotters will make you feel invincible.

The start takes some getting used to since there aren't any feet. Work up til your right hand lands in a crappy crimp and then get your feet on really bad nubs. Kelly's Arete is slightly easier if you're shorter since you can get your left foot up to a better hold. The topout is easier than it looks.

Felt like the crux was a dead point below the top out. Like Sock Puppet said: The top out isn't bad. Super fun problem! When I sent this it was such a great moment for me that I refuse to even touch the line again. I don't ever want to ruin that memory.

Crux is dealing with that crimp and bad feet. I found to topout to be not too difficult, however thoroughly engaging.
