Description

I'm pretty sure I've climbed this but I can't remember the grade. Any care to fill in the blanks?

Weren't sure what it was, but it was dry and clean so we( a friend and I) climbed it. The conventional start seems to be from the sloper/shallow jug holds next to the arete, though we used a sit start smearing one foot and dangling the other while using a small side-pull near the ground. From there we moved into what sounds like the normal stand start and followed the arete to the top out. I'm newer to outdoor climbing, but this problem felt maybe v2-v3 because of some slightly burlier moves to good holds right after the sit start. Good problem. Apr 7, 2017

Sit start is burly, but not v3. Stays really dry and clean, which is nice. Mar 31, 2012

From what I remember about this route, the stand start is the more obvious line, and like Paul said, about v1 Nov 6, 2009

We climbed it in August (four people of varying height)- maybe it was the start as mentioned before, but I wouldn't call it a V3, I'd lean toward V2. Regardless, it was a fun one, and what an awesome looking feature! Sep 26, 2009

From a stand start I think this thing is only like V1 because the top moves seemed easy. Could be V3 if you start from the lowest slopey holds because there is no feet. Sep 17, 2009
not sure of the grade but i know it is very height dependent, reachy moves half way up, where did you start on it? i started in the crack just left of the arete and moved out on to the arete about three feet up. Sep 9, 2009
