The short, blunt arete on the side of The Egg that faces down the hill can be very enjoyable; however, it can also feel horrible without good friction. Start sitting with right on really low crimp that is actually close to the ground and left on a slopey crimp higher up on the face. Make a move up to the arete with the right. Bump right hand up a couple times and make a crux move with the left to gain the easy upper arete.


Locate this climb by finding the name "Brian" written on the boulder.


A pad.


Are you allowed to use any of the face to the left with your left hand? Jun 21, 2016

As a taller climber (6'1"), the lower right start hand was incredibly difficult, to the point where I couldn't pull off the ground. Instead, I started with the same left hand and the right hand up on the lowest sloper at the bottom of the arete. Still felt V5. Mar 5, 2018

Same as Pat, but I actually couldn’t reach the first sloper. I started with only the left hand on the crimp and had to push off the feet to gain the first sloper. Really good problem. Jul 19, 2018
