Superb movement with a variety of ways to get through the crux. Start on good edges and feet from the ground and move up the sidepulls, slopers, and edges. The height may get to you if you're used to short problems, but the landing is great and safe overall.

From mid-height either use your best layback skills to move through the sloping pinches at the top, or hike up your feet and do a large deadpoint/dyno to the rail.

Top out straight above with an easy mantle.

Crashpad and a spotter


Classic. If you have a mountain of pads below it gets to be real fun. Oct 21, 2013
The flake at the start of this problem - commonly used as a start foothold and to get up to the arete - has come off completely.

I was out there last weekend (May 1st, 2016) and the entire flake was laying on the ground. The last time I made it to this problem was back in October 2015 and the flake was still very much in place and - seemingly - solid.

Not sure if this affects the grade at all (I don't know much about grades, really), the start is still pretty doable and the moves up top remain unaffected. It remains quite fun. May 2, 2016
This problem is both tough (the crux is pretty high up there) and totally awesome. Bring several pads and you're all set! Jun 5, 2017
