One of South Platte’s gems, climbing a unique, crimpy, arete and dihedral feature, this line offers thoughtful movement and consistency, and sending always seems to give people much more trouble than expected.
From an awkward sit start off the unfortunate landing with your hands matched on an undercling/sidepull hold, pull on, and move to a slippery rail. Techy crimping on the arete sets up for a long move to an edge in the corner. Drop knees and interesting positions lead to a final throw for the glorious lip jug. Finish with an easy topout.
I have left the FA credits blank due to some controversy regarding this one; however, both of the problems’ pioneers did a great job with the vision behind the line.
It is the obvious line on the Wolf Boulder. Sds on a good hold on the faint arete, and climb up the pure line of holds of finish through the skylight.
