The Crux is starting out you start low on the Arete and work your right arm up the right side and the left arm up the left side. Crimpy moves lead to a side pull then from there its a huge fat sloper right in the middle of the arete about 7ft up. From here it gets easier but this is still the big part of the problem is solving how to balance just right to get up and around the sloper.


Dr. Green Thumb is the obvious leaning arete in the Fontainebleau area. Start low on the arete and don't use either side of the walls that the arete is between.


Crash Pads (2) would be great! Spotters as the route lies between to rocks.

I was lucky enough to get some beta on it. This is def. not v1 if done sit starting up the arete. I'd hunt down Housiaux and try to get the beta before butching this route. Fun route but def. If can find some beta. Oct 19, 2010
