Start sitting on a big right hand pocket/undercling and left hand on a worse pocket to the left. Move slightly up through a pretty positive sloping crimp rail and a strange and somewhat tweaky split finger pocket/crimper/sloper/pinch on the arete up and right (hard to describe this hold, but you will know it when you see it). Grab one of several options of slopers then move up to the good holds above. Keep it together through the awkward and sandy topout.

This is a great problem with powerful and insecure moves above a good landing. Looks like there are several ways to do it.


Just up canyon from the main Raiden area gully. Clearly visible from the road. Maybe 30 feet off the right side of the road when heading up canyon. There is a good parking spot on the opposite side of the road just across from the boulder.


Two pads and a spotter.

Fun climbing but very fragile up top. The feet at the lip and flakes from above are ready to break Nov 26, 2017
