Description

Start low on the right arete and climb the arete with your body on the side facing the road until you get to the very top. At the top, find the foot on the right to finish.

Location

Cross the street by the Shark's Fin boulder on the corner and go towards the Impossible Problem. The Fin is on the left and the Impossible Problem is on the right.

Protection

CAREFUL! This is a highball with a BAD landing! Probably requires at least 3 pads, one of which needs to be jammed under the start so the other ones don't slip down when they get weighted. Also requires a spotter to be under the climber more so than behind the climber to make sure the climber doesn't slam face-first into the boulder after a fall.

This thing is probably more like a 1 but the height makes it heady and brings it up a bit. May 7, 2015

This is, hands down, one of the best v1's I have ever done (probably second after Zig Zag Crack at Rumney). Amazing arete that climbs just as well as it looks. Oct 10, 2016
