DescriptionWalk up from the trail, around the main face of the boulder, past the overhanging portion to the uphill-most, overhung, short arete that ends at a corner tip.
Sit-start very low. find the lowest small pocket (two/three finger) on the left side of the arete, and notice that if you position your hand correctly it also incorporates a great thumb catch. the right hand can be placed anywhere on the right side of the arete along the positive, long rail feature. Utilize finicky feet anywhere.
Pull up and discover a sea of possibility... there are multiple ways to scale this steep arete to gain the overhead lip/corner to lead into the topout.
You could fall in left to an angled crimp (sharp), bump further to another left rail (thin), move far up left to an awesome looking pinch loaf (awkward), or just huck big up to the quality lip... anyway you turn it you'll lunge for something...
Once you get to the lip, press out a top out and use the crack seam to aid the finish move.
