Start sitting at right arete, and move up and left. Pull on the wall from a sit start with two side pulls and then fire up left hand to the ledge 6' up. Topout has a cool rockover move.

I finally got out to this climb and was psyched to get a send! I pulled on the wall from a sit start with two side pulls and then projected up left hand to the ledge 6' up. It is a really cool move that requires precision to hit the hold just right and then controlling a funky swing. The topout is not as difficult as the bottom and has an interesting rock over move. I thought a good name would be snatch the pebble due to the first move. In my opinion, it is a good quality problem and hopefully it sees more traffic. Jan 28, 2017
I cleaned this line up a few weeks ago. It's probably going to have some wild beta given the poor LH holds on the face down low and the good rail 6' up. I gave it about an hour's efforts and never stuck the rail from the sit. The RH I used is easiest as an undercling so the crux was fighting the barndoor enough to rise up a bit until you can generate for a dyno/deadpoint to the good rail. I did it standing crouched from the low holds, but that eliminates 90% of the problem's challenge. I'd tried it from the left side of the arete, but it looked like some bizarrely contorted beta staying to the right side of the arete would also be possible. Jan 5, 2016
