Description

Nopinyon Arete is a mega-classic problem that, until recently, was difficult to climb due to a large dead tree standing up against the boulder. The tree fell down sometime in the past several years, and now the arete is open for business. Bear hug your way up the right side of the arete until you can reach jugs for an easy top out.

Location

Nopinyon Arete is on the spire-like boulder that is sitting just north of the Alien Baby area(Gendarme Boulder). This tall boulder is stacked with highball problems on all sides. The Nopinyon Arete is the NW Arete, and starts standing with a left hand pocket on the arete and a high right hand edge. There is a large dead tree in the middle of the landing zone. Downclimb on the SE side of the boulder.

Protection

Pads and spots.

The first real committing move from a crimp up to slap the slopey right side is "protected" by a prickly pear cactus that has grown close to the right side of the problem. Be confident or practice the move in a non-commiting manner and with a spotter to ensure you don't land in the cactus. 6 days ago
