While this short arete may have once been a low quality V2, some holds broke and now it's an overlooked V4 with a V8ish variation. Pull on to the arete using bad hands and feet and pop for the lip, then top it out. Exiting left is the easier version.

The V8 variation uses the arete for the left hand and poor crimps on the wall right of the arete to start. Dyno big with your right hand to a hidden jug and top it out.


Right face/arete of right warm-up boulder. Faces away from the trail.

Not a great problem. After a move or two to get established, you can finish either left or right. Finishing left is considerably easier. To finish right, make a big move with bad feet to a jug.

This is listed as V2 in the guide book, why the considerable increase in the grade. Did the one broken hold make it that much harder?
