BETA PHOTO: New problem on short arete boulder


go around the left side of the "nose"
good juggy warm-up, with a decent landing if you have a spotter.

Start at the sit for Overhanging nose, work towards left hueco and make a reach left to an incut finger-jug, bump again about a foot over the roof for a good (but a little sharp) hold with the left hand, bring the right hand to the first hold (that your left hand was just on), next put your feet on the giant block under you and make a long reach to okay holds on top, get your feet up and try to get to the great right hand jug, top out.


Same sit start as "overhanging nose"


several pads and a good spotter, there are two boulders behind you (one looking like a couch).

Good warm up, that doesn't require crimping! May be sharp to some.
