-Stand start to Beastmaker
this problem is on the Beastmaker Boulder, and starting on the left side of the arete. stand start up on top the bad landing rock (pad it) and grab onto the finger jug with a left hand, and side-pull the opposite facing crimp-rail on the edge/corner or the arete with a right hand. wedge a outside edge foot in an in-cut slot on the arete and fire/fall into a very shallow left handed crimp line as a side-pull. bump up high to a slopey rounded bump/sloper and then make a fun move out right to a small knob on top. heel hook right and work up through a larger (less positive than it looks) knob further up for the top out.Bold Text
LocationWalk up the stone steps and down the trail until you come to a cavernous looking stone room. look at the wedge shaped overhanging arete boulder, and then look on the left side of the arete.
the rail just above eye level will be the place for a left hand, and on the edge for the arete there will be a near vertical crimp side-pull, which serves as a right hand.
Stand start on the block in the center of the room.
