Sit start at the low right end of the arete with right on a jug sidepull and left on the arete, pull straight up to a crimp and match. Start making your way left on crimps on the overhanging face underneath where the boulders meet. (There is a hold on the arete where the boulders meet that is a jug if your thumb is on the other boulder, which is off for the full value.) Move left on crimps and gastons to a throw to a jug and mantle over left. Watch the block behing you, don't hit your head or use it.


This is located in the same cave as 'Known Secret'. It is on the left side of the entrance to the first cave below the Rupture Cave. See the photo.


Pads and a spotter.

Has the Arete gone from a sit start? Seems pretty hard as I kept flying-off of it yesterday. At the time I thought the line was Tornado...until I came back and read the description. I now have to go back to work on this one. Oct 25, 2009

This is stout V7, worked through the crux last night just need to link it together. IMHO this feels harder than both V8s I've sent recently. Great problem though can't wait to get back and finish it.... Jun 17, 2010

Ok...I looked at the above photo. Has this gone without the right hand? I.e. going straight up the arete from a sit? Nov 25, 2010

Dunno, but it would be a silly eliminate, cuz the jug's right in your face.... Nov 25, 2010

Good holds and good feet, felt like V5. Apr 28, 2012

Agree, if "Known Secret" is an 8, then you can't call this 7. May 5, 2013
This problem, as well as the rest of the caves, have been recently defaced by graffiti. Apr 7, 2014
