Access Issue: Currently close per the wishes of the town and private land owners. Please do not climb here! Hopefully access will be regained in the future. Details


Sit start in the "cave" with both hands left of the arete on crimps but with big feet. (There is also a really small crimp just right of the arete proper that I normally use because I feel it puts my body in position better.) Pull off the ground to match on the large slopey shelf. From here power up the arete using holds on either side of the arete. To obvious top out holds on the right side of the arete.

Foot work and sequence is key to sending this route. The kemple guide has it listed as only climbing the left side of the arete, however that is very contrived and making use of both sides of the arete flows better and still sustains the grade of V6.


This problem is situated just right and back of the Pound Crack Boulder. If you stand at The Blot and turn around you will see this problem, looks intense.

On the map on the Pound main page this is located on the "Smoke and Mirrors Boulder" (If you couldnt guess...)


Pads and spotter.
