Awkward start to wounded knee arete
The arete at the east (left) side of the broad vertical north face of Wounded Knee boulder. Starts on a semi-detached hanging blob. Pull up using a right-hand sidepull, then reach high for a poor left hand crimp. Work out the crux move, and finish up the arete or move slightly right to a more secure finish with a scarier landing (rock in landing zone).
pads (I recommend 2), spotter.
Topout. Pad position is not recommended.

i peeled off this problem at Shred Fest this year and managed to fracture my tibia, tear my ACL, MCL, and managed to fold my meniscus in half like a taco.... i still don't understand how i pulled that one off

The FA on this one was Paul Horak if I remember, circa 1979.
