Description

This fun arete is full value, sit start, uses the arete and the crack on the face, interesting moves and a good topout to finish.

Sit start under the mini overhang/bulge with both hands in the crack. Figure out how to get off the ground (kinda tricky), make a hard slap to a sloper crimp around the bulge, grab the arete and a perfect edge, then figure out how to get up to the top using the crack out left and the arete, make a crux high bump on the arete then power to the lip, it's a flat jug.

Location

On the 4 Elements Boulder, if you're looking at Lone Wolf look to the left, this is the square boulder about 60ft away. This is the arete you'll see on the right.

Protection

Two pads, spotter highly recommended.

This line is one my new favorites, it's got some really sweet movement. Originally I was trying to just climb the arete, which felt heinous and hard, so I was super psyched when I figured out that the crack out left actually works. It climbs so much better with it now.

It may actually help to be shorter for this line, for the high right heel hook and the tricky start. Oct 3, 2016
