Description

Brace yourself for perhaps the hardest v2 on the mountain. Being able to crimp v-hard will not automatically mean you will be able to power up this arete. Be prepared for a fun challenge deciphering this technical climb.

Balance up the left side of the arete.

Location

Although technically not considered part of The Caves in the guidebook, this is the first climb you happen upon when approaching the Caves from the Top Rock side of the mountain. From here, the Caves are just a stones throw away.

I truly believe this is one of the best climbs of any grade in the country. Way harder than it looks and amazing in how it comes together. I think 3 is fair and still plenty sandbagged to keep with the general trend of the area. Dec 27, 2017
