Description

One of the proudest lines at Pawtuckaway, this incredible arete towers over every other boulder in Devil's Den. Stand start matched on the arete and layback off of the boulder above the chasm. Pull on to the wall and make committing moves between small edges and sloper knobs found along the laser-cut arete. A lot of core tension, precise footwork and a good head leads to a very committing end sequence. Stab at the perpendicular arete/ lip before rocking over on a heel.

Location

This one is hard to miss. Walk from Boulder Natural up to Devil's Den. Walk past the large Bad Apple/ Decomposing Walrus Boulder, until you reach the next large boulder (this boulder has "Ashes to Ashes" and "A Moment of Light" on it) on the left side of the trail. This problem is located in the talus field above this large boulder.

This right to left lip traverse is found almost directly behind "A Moment of Light".

Protection

FA had a snow landing and 11 pads. With no snow, 15+ are recommended. Most of the falls were fairly controlled, but the problem is very exposed and insecure.
