Description

One of the best problems at Santee! This one climbs the left side of the sloping southwest arete of the Amphitheatre. Start with a high foot, and walk your hands up the sloping edge. With the use of some small feet and a bad lefthand crimp, continue up the arete until you can palm all the way over the top, and top out direct, up and left. It's way easier (V1ish) you pull around right onto the slab at any point instead of continuing up the arete.

I've been told V7. The crux is the last move or two getting your feet up into the stand-start position. Jan 16, 2012
