  • Description 

    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.
