Anatomy Act

V7, Boulder, 12 ft,  Avg: 2.8 from 12 votes
FA: unknown
Utah > Joe's Valley > Left Fork > Eden > Eden Boulder


A nice arete, with interesting moves, and cool holds. This is the arete to the right of Save Yourself.

Start with with both hands on holds on the arete at about chest to head hight. Pull on and make a big move to a pocket on the right side of the arete with the right hand. Left hand to a sloper on the left side. Continue up to more slopers, and a mantle where the angle eases off.


This is the arete on the left side of the face of Save Yourself and Eden.


At least 2 pads and a spotter. The problem is not tall, but the landing slopes downwards.

[Hide Comment] An under appreciated line. There is a sit (more like a squat) start that goes at around v9 and is nowhere near as good as the stand, in my opinion. It basically starts a couple moves lower and adds a few awkward moves into the stand. There might be an even lower start, but I'm not sure what the starting holds are. Nov 18, 2014

[Hide Comment] Awesome line, campusing made it easier for me to hit the pocket because of the lack of good feet. Would recommend trying. Apr 19, 2018
