Description

Fun moves on big edges and pinches take you through some dikey and potentially loose rock to the top of this blunt arete. Height and jumbled landing conspire to warrant a highball designation.

Location

Vintage is the arete left of the obvious finger crack known as Warrior. This boulder is immediately to the right if you are standing looking at Storm Pockets. Or it is to the left if you are standing at Ride the Lightning.

Protection

Pad the fallen tree scraps lest ye be impaled.

Tried this climb a few years ago and finally got back to try it this year. The "Jug" that you first bump to from the sit start isn't there anymore, you can see the sharp dark triangle of rock where it broke off, making the start much more difficult. Got it done though and it was an awesome climb. Heady topout :D Oct 17, 2016

Finally! Such a cool climb, just had to commit to the bump. This climb took me almost a year and I flashed Tectonic Plates (v8), just to explain how hard this was for me. I'm so psyched! Sep 17, 2016

I climbed vintage yesterday with that hold now missing. The piece that broke was the loose triangle hold that people used to get out to the arĂȘte. The climb isn't really changed without it and I think its even a bit better now as that loose hold deterred from the quality of the climb. The grade is still solid at V4. Dec 18, 2010

As of Sept '10, a significant chunk of rock fell off the midsection of this climb before the crux. The chalky remains were laying on the ground last time I saw them, but one of the holds looks larger now. I'm not sure if it changes the grade at all. Nov 2, 2010
