At the start.


This problem sit starts on a sidepull pinch/sloper jug at the left of the Pharaoh Boulder. I believe that the large crimp sidepull about 6 feet from the ground around the right of the arete, and the large shelf at about 7-8 on the right side of the arete are not to be used to keep it at it's original grade of V5. I am not sure, however, and welcome any input from other members. I will post pictures when I can get some.


Below the Cave Boulder at the far left of the Pharaoh Boulder.


Two pads are probably best. Watch your back and head as you head upward.
