Description [Suggest Change]

Starting on a bomber undercling flake, slap up left to good side-pulls on the arete. Good side-pull crimps out right. Keep slapping left hand up the arete until you come into a small right hand side-pull/undercling. The crux comes here with either a big move right hand or tenuous move left hand to a good hold on the arete. Once here continue up the arete with a small right hand crimp to better holds.

Location [Suggest Change]

Facing the drainage, this problem is located on the northwest side of a boulder just up the hill from most of the other established problems. It's almost directly left of the very large bloc left of the 2nd Flatiron.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three pads and one spotter should be sufficient but more is better.

I just put this problem up yesterday, so the grade is tentative and surely requires confirmation. Since I was trying the problem by myself with two pads, the problem may not be as hard as posted. A guess at best. A great problem nonetheless! I'll probably return in the next week to show it to some friends, so some input and a photo soon to come. Check it out! May 5, 2010

With the recent snow and moisture, I probably won't be up there for a bit, but I'll post some pictures as soon as I do. May 12, 2010
