Description

Locate a sloping hold above head level, near the diagonal crack on the left end of the wall. Start matching on the sloper, and traverse right along a line of newly cleaned slopers for 15-20' or so until you can turn onto a slab that faces west (behind Arrowhead Arete). Some variations have yet to be cleaned, and eventually this will be a nice wall to warm up on.

Location

This is on a North-facing wall below Arrowhead Arete, that starts just right of the hole where George starts out of. Begin at a diagonal crack on the left side of the wall, and traverse right.

Protection

A pad.

This was a really cool traverse but also pretty difficult, and I came up with some pretty funky beta to get from the starting holds to the second big scoop, not to mention just starting on those holds with some weird foot voodoo. Delicate but super gratifying when you get it. The texture on this thing was incredible.

The landing is good enough to place a single pad further along the problem, which was good, and the problem ends on good feet and good jugs, just gets more dirty as you pull onto the west face. May 10, 2016

George is now Sweet Nectar.... Sit start in crack, up crack to reach left to hole, then proceed up and left on small holds to a nice finishing jug when you really need it! Apr 2, 2010

Does George start on jugs and climb into a nice handcrack? If so, I think it would be a good addition to Mountainproject. Mar 9, 2010
