This is a great climb, a classic maybe... Starting low on the overhanging arete using the small sloper/crimp on the arete and the small corner of the flake on the face pull on and throw out right to the pinch on the corner. Make a challenging throw/slap with your left hand up the top of the arete to an okay sloper. Climb/campus along the arete on buttery smooth slopers to a decent jug at the top of the arete. Mantle straight up....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
