Trying "Slap you Silly"

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


Desperate smearing and slapping your way up the blunt arete. Use tricky smears and slopers to "bear hug" your way up. Feels like an OW to climb.


Directly across the road from the Big Grunt chimney. On the Northeast side of the boulder.


Two TR bolts up top. Walk on and off via the west side of the boulder.

What a cool problem! Tried it yesterday for my first time. Got halfway up on my second try with my body on the left side of the arete...but then got totally shut down for lack of feet. After looking at these pics, do most people straddle the arete and bearhug all the way up?
