Very short...eight feet tall at most, but this problem packs a little bit of a punch. Start sitting with right on the arete and left higher on a nice slopey sidepull. With a left heelhook, crank off the ground and slap to the lip. Lowball, but good for solo missions.


When arriving at The Shade Boulder from the trail, this is on the right side of the boulder; the little arete you first see to the left of a tree. When topping out, there are branches from the tree that can get in your way.


Pad, but so short you might not even need one.
