Description

The V3 is located on the right arete of the west face. Crux comes high on the topout. I find the throw from the crack to the bomber jug on the arete amazing.

Edit: After climbing this again this spring I think the crux is actually the move out of the sit start and not the topout. Beta: From a crossed hands sit start make a fairly large move with your right hand and hit the crack on the right, then bump about 1' higher to the upper part of the crack. Sweet Moves!!

Location

The right arete on the west face.

Protection

Crashpad, great landing.

As was the style of the time, this was first done from a stand start in the crack to the right of the arete, crossing the right over to a finger lock and then reaching around the corner and bumping up. May 24, 2010

I agree, the crux is at the beginning, possibly slapping the left side of the arete before the big throw? Jan 23, 2010
