Description

SDS on big edges and go more or less straight up. The topout can be tricky for some.

Location

downstream from the "Rail" (also called the Angler) through the first patch of trees. There are many V0-V2s on the north face and Kelly's Arete is the obvious line on the eastern most edge of the boulder.

Protection

crashpads and some spotters will make you feel invincible.

For anyone with a. Half decent head the top out should feel pretty easy. One large pad will do. What poster above meant to say was that the Crux is easier for those with flexibility. Oct 30, 2017

Don't use the use heel hook start.
Do use the slopey right foot to go for the pocket and not the glazed mini horn. (shorty beta)
Rail #2 has the best pocket for the topout (the one on the left) Jun 8, 2016

Crux is dealing with that crimp and bad feet. I found to topout to be not too difficult, however thoroughly engaging. Jan 3, 2011
Felt like the crux was a dead point below the top out. Like Sock Puppet said: The top out isn't bad. Super fun problem! When I sent this it was such a great moment for me that I refuse to even touch the line again. I don't ever want to ruin that memory. Aug 9, 2009

The start takes some getting used to since there aren't any feet. Work up til your right hand lands in a crappy crimp and then get your feet on really bad nubs. Kelly's Arete is slightly easier if you're shorter since you can get your left foot up to a better hold. The topout is easier than it looks. Jul 12, 2009
