Description

Sit start from good holds under a low roof, fire out to the lip with the right hand and then work out left and up the face to the arete. try to avoid ferns and moss as you top out

Location

As you appraoch the den it's in the back corner or the large bouler on your left. It starts from a sit under a low roof, the cliff will be at your back.

Protection

pads and a spotter, getting onto the arete is heady. You will want a spotter to move your pads so you can jump off from the lowest (8 ft) spot on the boulder

I never felt like the dab potential was great, with my beta, but you're so close to the ground using a pad will dab you. The movement on this climb was surprisingly good though. Not super classic or anything for devil's den but definitely worth visiting if you have the skin/time. Aug 9, 2015

As Lee stated, this climb has a really interesting combination of moves and packs quite a lot into a short space. That part I like.

The part I don't like is that for the starting moves, you are literally six inches off the ground and the dab potential is high. If you are wearing a chalk bag (perhaps to chalk up for the techy arete moves up high), it will be touching the ground through the start.

This climb is solid v7 if you start with your feet down low. If you start with your left foot already on the heel hook, it is likely a full grade easier. Aug 23, 2013

It looks like the first face hold coming out from the roof has broken. It still looks useable though a little harder now. Apr 21, 2007
