Description

Stellar compression problem. Start laying very low under the steep arete. Grab the two lowest holds, pull on and climb. The first three moves are the crux followed by a few moderate moves to a reachy final move off of an edge to reach the top.

You work into the undercling on the right face and go straight up from there. You'll be standing directly on top of the slopey rail. There's video of it at the following link:

It's the 2nd problem beginning at about 0:46. Hope this clarifies it a bit! Jun 24, 2012
It's kind of hard to tell where to top out based on this description. I did find a good edge out right, but thought that was the top out for the 6. Also there's a slopey pocket on the face straight up. And there are powerful undercling moves and a crimp seam out left. Clarification? Jun 24, 2012

The start on this problem can be confusing. Start on the absolute lowest holds on the overhanging arete. If you start on the two holds higher this reduces the difficulty to around V5 or 6. Oct 19, 2009

Blake cleaned and worked out this problem. He showed it to me and I managed the FA. He did it immediately after me. Oct 16, 2009
