Description

This was, in our opinion, not only the best problem at pinnacles pullout, but also one of the best in the moderate grade in the Arietta region.
Start with your right hand on a small edge on the right side of the arete. Left foot in a pocket near the ground. And left hand slapped on the corner side of the arete. Head straight up the arete without traversing right to better holds, or left into the corner.

Location

This is the perfect arete that is to the right of the corner. It is really quite easy to see. It is at the warm up boulders right in the middle of the mini-crag.

Brian- added the sit start to this problem over the weekend. Right hand low on the right side of the arete in the sidepull/pocket, left hand squeezing the arete. Climbs straight up to the sloping finish at the top. Difficult to grade as the sit start is very tricky, maybe V6/7ish. I will make sure to include this problem in the upcoming Adirondack Bouldering guidebook! Nice find. Aug 7, 2013
