Description

A perfectly cleaved smooth friction face with visible starting feet and then a few bare hints of something you might call edges or holds. It is significantly harder than Blue or Red Suede shoes. Extremely temp dependent, with paper thin edges in a couple of spots. If you can send this one, you'll likely do well on Kumba - the other notable hard slab on the Camp 4 Circuit.

Location

This is basically right next to Ament Arete. If you're walking down the old paved trail through the circuit coming from the Wine Boulder area, it's facing you, right next to the trail, a smooth tan colored face. Just to the right is a split in the boulder that provides a low angle 8' handcrack.

Kumba is much harder, probably V8 like Dean originally rated it. Sep 15, 2014

There is video floating around somewhere of Kauk just walking this thing. Might have been in that one with all the bad music and 75% scenery shots and 25% climbing (edit: Ascending Rhythm?) Oct 27, 2011

I've seen this as rated V8. Felt closer to V6 to me. Oct 24, 2011
