Description

Stand start. Using sidepulls on each side of the arete (waist height), jump feet onto wrap-around rail. Slap left hand onto arete and toe hook the left start hold. Bump right hand up crack. Move up on thin face with the help of the arete for left hand. The crux is digging hard into the crimp near the top and bumping left foot onto a turned edge, then throw for the top.

Location

Low on left arete facing downhill.

Protection

Extra pad to cover rock near base is helpful.
