Sit start with a left hand on the arete and a right hand on a good sidepull. From there, bump the left up to a small crimp on the arete, then stand up and gain the two incut edges, follow with a right hand pinch (crux?), work the feet up, use a left hand undercling (crux?), slap the right further up the arete, and top it out using the positive bumps.

I'm not sure if it makes a difference with the difficulty, but I avoided the rock out right of the problem (where Shin Guard climbs) and stayed true to the arete.


It climbs the southwest arete of Blacked Out Boulder, just to the left of Shin Guard.


A pair of pads should do it, the landing is very good.
