Sit start at the crimp rail and make a big move out left to the start of the arete. Move up and right on the arete all the way to the top. Classic!


Find the crimp rail on the northwest face of the Back Door Boulder 1 - Bow Ridge 46.


A pad.

There are indications this has been climbed in the past. The critical foothold for the start move has begun the slow process of eventually coming off, but for now it is good to go.
