Description

Start on head high edges next to the arete and make a couple moves to the flat-but-sloping lip. There's pretty much nothing up top to bear down on after the lip, setting the stage for an array of stylish manteling and entertaining armyman topout maneuvers, depending on the climber's skill set and familiarity with the problem.

This rig is similar to the Thing Across From Bierstadt, in that neither is spectacular and yet they get climbed and warmed up on regularly since they're just a few feet from Bierstadt.

Location

The arete on the boulder on the left side of the Bierstadt Corridor, directly across from Bierstadt and Ludders Pinch and about 6 feet left of what has been inauspiciously referred to as the Thing Across From Bierstadt.

Protection

An Organic pad will do just fine, but you might have to move a rock chair which is occasionally constructed under the problem (see photo).

Seems to me that the more obvious line is to sit start on the juggy ledge instead of up high. This pushes the grade to about V2 I'd say. Jul 17, 2017
