Description

Sweet steep arete...lead, TR (easy scramble to anchors) or boulder.

Landing is flat, but it's tall if you go sans rope.

Location

Walk through the "most obvious" sandy corridor closest to the parking lot. Obvious arete on left side...

Protection

A few pieces in the .75-2.5 range.

Top has a tree, you'll want some looooong runners though.

It was tough getting from the first jug to the second. Had to actually jump for it. Would hate to slip near the top bouldering. If you miss the last hold it's a pretty good drop to the sand or a crash pad. Aug 17, 2010

Crux is right off the ground, no reason not to boulder it unless you are really short (little reachy between giant horizontals). Aug 28, 2008
agreed, this is a boulder problem. Check out "Stone Crusade" for a good pic of the Verm on the clit sans rope Apr 14, 2007
