Description

This is the amazing arete on the right side of the boulder can't miss it.

Sit start low and go right hand to a small crimp, from there follow good holds to a shelf, then bust out the crux and top 'er. Watch out for the rock behind you.

Location

This is on the right side of the Automator Block.

Protection

Lots of pads.

There's a fun variation on this climb starting on Tommy's, then at the huge rubber covered ledge it moves out right to nice crimps and a big lock off to the top. V5? Sep 21, 2013

Although soft for V7, this is one of the most amazing climbs I've ever been on...in the world. Incredible, in a word. Jul 25, 2010

Did a variation of this problem today that eliminates all use of the arete, via using some of the holds on Automator and stemming in the shallow dihedral. It's called Tom's Arete. Sep 12, 2009
