Description 

Sit start at the low right end of the arete with right on a jug sidepull and left on the arete, pull straight up to a crimp and match. Start making your way left on crimps on the overhanging face underneath where the boulders meet. (There is a hold on the arete where the boulders meet that is a jug if your thumb is on the other boulder, which is off for the full value.) Move left on crimps and gastons to a throw to a jug and mantle over left. Watch the block behing you, don't hit your head or use it.


Location 

Located in the same cave as 'Known Secret'. On the left side of the entrance to the first cave below the Rupture Cave. See photo.


Protection 

Pads, spotter.

Has the Arete gone from a sit start? Seems pretty hard as I kept flying-off of it yesterday. At the time I thought the line was Tornado...until I came back and read the description. I now have to go back to work on this one.

Yes, the problem is a sit-start.

This is stout V7, worked through the crux last night just need to link it together. IMHO this feels harder than both V8s I've sent recently. Great problem though can't wait to get back and finish it....

Ok...I looked at the above photo. Has this gone without the right hand? I.e. going straight up the arete from a sit?

Dunno, but it would be a silly eliminate, cuz the jug's right in your face....

Good holds and good feet, felt like V5.

Agree, if "Known Secret" is an 8, then you can't call this 7.

This problem, as well as the rest of the caves, have been recently defaced by graffiti.
