Description

Move easily up and left toward the arete till the pockets run out. Paw at the arete with your left hand and set your feet to bust the big move to the sidepull way up and around the arete. A couple more insecure moves gains a good horizontal and easier climbing to the top. Problem would get 3 stars if it was not squeezed in a corner making you feel like you're going to hit stuff if you blow it, though you shouldn't hit anything.

Location

The arete at the left end of the face that houses My Heart Grew Wings Over Desert Skies.

Protection

Pads and spotter.

Absolutely great fun.
Good climbing, interesting fun crux.

This would be a classic if the rock quality stayed good to the top. You should tread VERY lightly up high and should test everything before you weight it. Aug 11, 2013
