Description [Edit]

A La Torry is a contrivance that stays true to the arete, the east face holds are off.

Stand start with a left hand sidepull in a shallow hueco and a right hand on the arete. From there, move to a perfect, left hand gaston on the arete, gain a thin right hand sidepull, paste a heel, reach the lip, and top it out.

Mileage can be added with a sit start, the difficulty and quality don't change much though.

Location [Edit]

This ascends the Northeast arete of Main Boulder. It shares the same arete as Sunny Day Syd, but the style and movement are very different though. A La Torry stays true to the arete versus Sunny Day Syd, which uses the arete and the adjacent east face.

Protection [Edit]

A pad or two, the landing is perfect though.
