Description

This tricky arete is either super crimpy or powerful depending on your beta. Either way, sit start with a good knob/jug for your left hand and your right on a small crimp. Pull off the ground and get your right foot up below your right hand before dropping into a sidepull/undercling crimp. Now you can either throw for a good rail or bump up slopers/crimps to get there slower. Once you get your foot up on the starting jug, the climbing gets easy. Finish up the arete to the top.

Location

On the other large boulder across from Terrorist, next to the trail. This problem is on the trail side, right next to Revolution and Evolution. Stack pads and jump off or downclimb the tree.

Bizarre and awkward, but surprisingly simple with the right beta. May 9, 2015

This problem can get frustrating at times and it doesn't climb that well but once you stick the crux you'll feel good about yourself. Give it a try and see how its goes. Footage of this climb starts at 1:46 youtube.com/watch?v=gZDYL2i… Jan 16, 2016
