You could walk past this line a hundred times and not notice it. This problem is not tall, but it's fierce.

We thought this was a project until we heard that Bobby Hardage climbed this circa 1998/2000. I believe he started sitting and he kept both hands on the arete and worked to the top that way.

Another possible variation is to start with your left hand on the corner and your right hand on an edge in the red streak. Then, climb the face by slapping your left hand up the corner. I'm not sure if this variation has been done.

The grade is just an estimate and could be off +/- 3 V points.


Walk uphill through the corridor. As soon as you exit the corridor, look to the left. There it is.

Thanks for the info Morgan. I'd like to know more about it. Was it done from the sit? Any chance this is confused with the arĂȘte to the right (also with a yellow blaze). Would you mind pm-ing me Robert's contact info?
