Description

A beautiful, striking arete that is both deceptive and frustrating. It's about as much of a V3 as the dyno method on it's neighbor, the Crimp Problem, which is to say they're both probably sandbagged or skewed in favor of the taller climber. If you're up to it, have a seat at the base of the arete with a right hand crimp and your left hand pulling on the arete. Bump up the arete a few times, grab a terrible crimp with your right hand and decide if you want to keep bumping up the arete or dyno to the juggy lip. I'll leave it to you to figure out the footwork.

Location

Atop the hill and between Jelly Rock/Try Again and the Hemlock Boulder/Big & Tall, this boulder forms the narrow corridor with Gadgetry, Maxim, etc. This climbs the sharp arete left of the Crimp Problem.
