DescriptionThis is an aesthetic and technical line that follows a beautiful, arching flake up a tall, slabby face.
Start sitting at the bottom of the flake with your left hand on a good hidden sidepull and your right hand wherever you prefer on the obvious flake. Pull off the ground and angle rightwards via some technical foot moves to eventually reach the arete with your right hand. Continue bumping your right hand up the arete and doing whatever you can with your left to keep from barndooring. Clever footwork and strong body tension will allow you to reach a good crimp below the lip with your left hand. From there, locate some good top out holds and figure out a way to turn the lip. Done!
While this climb has not been previously documented, it's obvious that it has been climbed before. I met a guy named Pete (from NY) who used to live in the area and he said he climbed the problem 5-10 years ago and thought he might have done the first ascent, given how much cleaning he had to do. If anybody has any more history or information, feel free to share!
