Nativity climbs a featureless overhanging arete on great rock over a very good landing. It's a short one, but it is entertaining and unique to the area.

Stand start with hands matched on the arete. From there, throw a heel on, cross over with the right hand to a sloper-pinch using the arete, bump the left hand past the right to a left hand pinch, bring the heel along, pull to a right hand sloper, hit the lip, and mantle on top.


It climbs the northeast arete of Conception.


A pair of pads will work well. The landing is very good.


My dude, Nick. I'll be honest. We went over to this boulder, looked at it, and walked away. This thing looks like V8. Reminded me of Chiseled before the fire under it. I still have my finger pulley, so we didn't jam on it. The crux in the center section, we couldn't figure if it's a cross over, or what we would do there. All the same, it's very hard. I would say this will become an ultimate classic once more traffic. Mar 7, 2018

I totally agree with you, Samuel! I thought this thing was SO hard! I always tell Nick he climbs V8, he just doesn't know it! Mar 7, 2018

I'm right there with you all. Sent the stand a few years ago without much trouble, at all. Returned to finally connect the proper sit and have experienced nothing but failure. In five sessions, even the stand has been elusive. Regression blows. The devil is in the details with this one, and conditions are more important than most climbs I've encountered in the canyon.
