Start sitting on the left arete. There are a couple different options for starting holds. I used a terrible sidepull crimp for my right hand and a slightly better sidepull crimp, around the corner from the arete, with my left hand. Pull off the ground with difficulty and slap up and right to an angled sloper on the lip. Match the lip with the left hand and fight for a couple more moves to reach better holds. Throw a heel on and press out a reasonably easy mantel. The first few moves are definitely the crux.

Short and stout! Good conditions definitely help. But, no matter what the conditions, this climb will likely destroy your skin.

I can't say I recommend this climb, but it might be worth doing if you've run out of things to climb or you consider yourself a masochist.


Located on the same boulder as 'Sharp Arete'. This small block is about 75 feet to the left of the Valley Boulder (when facing Firecracker).


A pad or two
