Description

The arete at the east (left) side of the broad vertical north face of Wounded Knee boulder. Starts on a semi-detached hanging blob. Pull up using a right-hand sidepull, then reach high for a poor left hand crimp. Work out the crux move, and finish up the arete or move slightly right to a more secure finish with a scarier landing (rock in landing zone).

Location

See above.

Protection

pads (I recommend 2), spotter.
