Description

One of my favorite problems. Start with your left hand on a slopey rail under a small roof and your right hand on a sidepull sloper. Put your feet on and throw that right heel up to your right hand. Dig that heel in and move/slap your way up and left on the lip around the arete to some pockets. You can finish by continuing to traverse left or up the slopey arete with a hard top out. I've never done the left finish, I always go up the arete which adds a second crux and puts it as an easy v6 to me.

Location

The first summit boulder. Starts in the little alcove (see pic).

The left exit with a heel hook and a mantle feels way more natural and fun ( also easier ) Aug 19, 2014

Start sitting with hands spread wide on opposing slopers and left foot on good low ledge. Pull on, hook a right heel near your hand and then traverse several moves left to point of prow. To finish climb up and RIGHT following low angle arete/lip to top of boulder. [Variation: Finish left manteling at start of Table Traverse. #8 on the beta photo Nov 21, 2011
