Start standing with right hand on the ramp and left hand at the same level on the arĂȘte. Work your way up the arĂȘte with dynamic moves followed by a perplexing top out over the bulging lip. A low start can be done by traversing the ramp although it doesn't add much in terms of quality or difficulty.


Located at the far (west) end of the Far Side. Follow the climber's trail down canyon from the Buzz Boulders for a few hundred yards, passing some of the main Far Side boulders along the way. Surprise is a northwest facing overhanging arete with a juggy ramp extending to the right.
