The newly cleaned project is up the arete left of "Seek and Destroy." If you start sitting on the lowest holds on the arette and Bump and cross to the best hold on the arete it is about a grade harder. If you stand-start on the good pinch and opposing crimp under the roof it makes a good problem on its own. You have a tough pinch, a crimp on the overhang and the good arette hold to make a shoulder wrenching move to an ok hold on the hanging block. Top out the same as "Seek and Destroy."


The route is on the river side of ICBJ on the left arete. Look for the isolated holds cleared of moss on the arete.


2+ pads. This is not very high, but there are some blades of rock that will split your ass in half if you slip and don't have them covered.

If you send it before me, name it and put the name and grade in a comment so I can update it. Aug 18, 2009
I'm heading up to Aspen in a few weeks. I'll give it a try, maybe try and call it "Master of Puppets"? Seems like a good name for it. Are the leaves changing up there in Aspen? Sep 5, 2009
Totally forgot about this problem till now, I did it on that September trip, calling it Master of Puppets Probably V7/8/9? Not sure, I'm short so the moves feel like V9? Mar 16, 2010
