Climb the obvious steep arete of the Fridge boulder, using slopers, pinches and body tension. Finishes with a really fun toss to a knob and a rockover up high.


It is the obvious, overhanging arete on the NW side of the boulder.


2 pads are nice. The throw to the knob is a little heady, but the landing is fine.

one of my all time favorites -- this thing is spectacular. the beta that worked for me was cold temps and a high right toe, as opposed to the heel hook. there's an intermediate left hand bump before the good buldge/knob.
