Bruno Hache doing some big stems through the crux.
Pumpkin Corner climbs the big corner right of Minutia Arete.
Start in the same place as Edges and Ledges and Minutia, at the base of a broken slab on the left side of the crag. Work up the broken slab to the start of the Minutia hand crack. Go right up a slabby ramp to the arete. Get gear in a finger crack and continue into the corner. Work up the corner to a steep section with a hand crack. Pass this section with some big stems. Continue up, past a hollow-sounding flake, to a 2-bolt anchor. Lower back down.
The difficulty of the crux is height dependent. Taller people might think it's 5.8+, shorter people might think it's 5.10.
On the left side of the Boulder Slips crag. Hike up a path to the base of a broken slab about 100' above the road. The route climbs the big corner right of Minutia Arete.
Gear to 2". Finger-sized nuts and cams up to a #2 Camalot. Bring some longer slings for the first two placements. 2-bolt anchor at the top.
