Description

Work your way along the arch until holds no longer exist above the arch, then go up and over. Fun problem with one big, fun, shouldery move, but VERY slick, polished feet, which makes the problem very frustrating.

For a V4, follow the arch all the way to its end, using only holds on the arch.

NOTE: this problem was originally given 4 stars, however I have since then changed that. Its an OK problem, and although its a classic to the area, its a classic because of its obviousness as a boulder problem. 2 stars is much more suiting.

Location

East-Wall, first arch structure that you'll see. Directly right to "The Arete" and left of "Battlement Lefty"

Protection

1 Bouldering pad + someone to move it or 2 pads and nobody

I would make this route as an "arch hold only" route, but it would feel very imbalanced. The first few moves are V2 easily, then it gets fairly hard and its not really all that fun. I could just make it a v2/v4 depending on how you do it. Dec 24, 2016

Its possible to follow the arch all the way out instead of dipping out early. Holds are very small . . . would say around V4. Dec 24, 2016
