Description 

This is a stand out classic. Climb the arete on the right side with powerful gut tension core popping moves will keep you moving until you reach the first of two crimps on the arete up high. One more set of moves and it is nearly all over... #15 JJ's old topo.

Steve,

Which side were you on? Maybe I am getting old but climbing the steep side( left hand on arete) is harder than v4/5. That would make it what, .12-? Fraid not, I can onsight .12 routes right now, but I will tell ya I haven't been on the thing since this summer.

we were on the right hand side of the left arete. our left hand on the arete. barndoor moves the whole way. i hate the comparison to routes from bouldering. sorry if i offended you. its not meant to be a sandbag, just what we thought it was.

No no, good work. A guy from La Crosse did it this summer as well. I must have been missing something. Though that probably means the grades are more or less useless coming from me. I haven't been able to boulder seriously for a couple years now. Once your out of the v-scale for a while it is hard to be accurate. Peace, good send. Let me know too, if you fire off the middle line.

Your right I did do this last summer...sometime... But I would be willing to bet D. Groth and company had the FA 15yrs before that.

Kind of an awkward start, but once you know how to do it feels great.

Tuff middle section. Couldn't send. But lots of fun.

John, great to meet you out there Saturday. For me the key to the middle section was a high left foot on the arete that allows you to reach the good crimp higher up. The photo of me above is actually pretty good beta, IMO. You'll nail it next time.

Great to meet you as well Chris. That high left foot looks like the ticket. I totally missed that.
