Description

All the right hand holds are crimps, the left hand holds are slopers and 2 crimps. The crux is at the top of the problem. There is an okay sloper on the arete, but it's a big move from a sharp, right hand crimp.

The start of the route is on a good right hand ledge and a good left hand side pull around waist level. The first move is a left hand slap to the arete. Find the sweet spot, and it's pretty good! Then move your right hand up to a crimp, your left hand in to a crimp. Then move your right hand to a sharp crimp, and then the crux. I've seen people do the crux different ways, either a heel hook around the arete or low feet on the start holds.

Location

It is on the Northwest side of the Main Boulder. This is the first route north of a large, flat, waist high boulder.

Protection

A pad. There is a large rock that looks scary to fall on, but I've never come close to touching it.
