Description

Start sitting with a left heel around the arete and hands crossed on the arete there is one good spot to do this, also pick a spot you like for your right foot. From here move right hand to a crimp and adjust feet to bump and to a triangle pocket that looks much better than it is. Move left hand to crimp you just hand your right hand on. From here make sizable move to good hand for right, adjust yourself and make dead-point to a jugish hold up the arete rock over and top out.

The crux is getting off the ground and the dead-point at the end. This route has cool flow, and think heel hook whenever you are stuck and maybe a drop knee.

This route was shown to me by someone who originally told me they thought it would go at V7, well its not that hard, but the first move can be discouraging because it could take a while to get, one you get it, you will love the move.

Location

One the Skip and Sandy Boulder, if facing The Devastating Reverend Tom, you climb the left arete, from a sit start, walk off on the road side.

I thought this was wicked fun, interesting movement with a big move at the end on more or less friendly holds the whole way with good feet. Has anybody tried following the arĂȘte all the way to the top of the boulder? It seems that would be pretty awesome, a bit harder and kinda scary. May 11, 2016

An okay line. Personally, I thought the climbing was pretty straight forward and not overly memorable. Oct 28, 2013
