Description

Climb the obvious steep arete of the Fridge boulder, using slopers, pinches and body tension. Finishes with a really fun toss to a knob and a rockover up high.

Location

It is the obvious, overhanging arete on the NW side of the boulder.

Protection

2 pads are nice. The throw to the knob is a little heady, but the landing is fine.

Mike Brady- how is this contrived? The line is to climb the arete using the holds on the arete. Feet are whatever works for you.

Definitely not easy when its hot. Its been done with heel hook to right or toe hook to the left by hooking it on the block of the fridge center.

For what its worth this was first climbed in the mid 90s sans pads.
Although the tree that used to exist near it provided some rigid-support (i.e ankle twisting potential). May 3, 2017

one of my all time favorites -- this thing is spectacular. the beta that worked for me was cold temps and a high right toe, as opposed to the heel hook. there's an intermediate left hand bump before the good buldge/knob. Nov 3, 2013
