This ultra-classic lowball starts on the obvious holds at the base of Tommy's Arete and heads left across an amazingly perfect series of crimps and sloping edges. A heart-breaking crux awaits at the end. Basically it is a V10 into a V10, power-endurance all the way.


It goes across the east face of the boulder.


A couple of pads is plenty.
