Sit start on the lowest rail with a right hand sloper and left hand edge. Make a few tough moves to reach the jugs of the stand start. Finish per Arboretum.
The crux of Arboretum has always been power endurance, adding a few more powerful moves makes it even more so. After sending, expect to feel like you've been punched in the gut a few times.

I'm not sure if anyone else had done this before Norm got around to finishing it up yesterday. Let me know and I'll fix the info.

Traffic seems to have improved this problem. I was shown the moves today, and got it after letting things go in to the shade. Do yourself a favor and don't climb it in the sun. Potters rock is gnar.

Arboretum has very fun, shoulder-intensive spans down low; a thrilling pull to the lip, and a burly mantel. I started sitting at the far right. Not sure exactly how you're supposed to start (I began sitting with a right heel-hook, my left hand on a crimp, and my right hand on the lowest shelf. Seemed honest. Aug 11, 2013
This feels way harder then Thomas Aquinas and I still haven't done it. Apr 16, 2017

It does feel hard, doesn't it. Has a blue-collar ending, if you ask me. Apr 16, 2017

Yeah been cruising around Potters a bit recently, reclimbing some of the 'ol goodies. This one climb around hard V7 now, and seems cleaner and better than ever. Tricky betas. Yeah blue collar ending sums it up well, gotta work for it.

Thomas Aquinas on the low end of 7, maybe even 6 with dialed beta (fat dropknee). Apr 18, 2017
