Turret (Tar-arete)

V3-4, Boulder, 8 ft (2 m),  Avg: 1 from 1 vote
FA: Dan Emrie, 2016(?)
Illinois > Chicago Area > Tar Boulder

Description

Sit start with left hand side pull crimp and right hand low on the arete. Hard to get off the ground. Bump up the right hand and make your way straight up. All of the arete is good. I tried to avoid using any of the holds from "tar and feathered". 

Location

Northwest arete of the boulder. Directly to the right of "tar and feathered"
