Description

Start out with hands on either side of the arete. Get the pocket jug with the right and work up arete using side pull crimps on left and larger holds on right. Finish with a jam in the finger crack at the top. Very exciting. #21 JJ's old topo.

I think this route is best done staying completely on the face. It still goes at V3 without touching the arete on either side and way more fun!

I like to start more on the right side of the face moving towards the center and to the finger crack at the top.

Serious fun! Aug 17, 2015

Have to agree with Joel.

Anyone else love the sharp good crimp? Oct 10, 2016
