This climbs starts on the outside, left of the arete that forms the the right side of the cave. The crux comes extremely quick on this one and is over once you have your hands and feet established up and right on the face, thus it might feel hard for the grade. The rest of the climb is enjoyable and solid nubbin and edging up the face and over the top (but don't fall from up high).


Pad and spotter nice but not necessary


It uses the arete at the beginning. Mar 22, 2013

Alright, I need a little help discerning the line of this problem, and possibly some beta. Does this problem use the arete that forms the right side of the cave, start in the cave and climb onto the face, or just straight up the face. I've been having a hard time figuring out the foot placement on the face. Thanks for any help. Jul 2, 2009
I agree with the description. A hard first move or two leads to easier climbing. Don't blow the top out though. There is a single bolt over the top if you want to rope it. allen Nov 14, 2007
