Description 

Sit start at a grainy shelf and make some very awkward moves getting established on the arete proper where technical liebacking up the rough grit will see you to the top.

Quality moves but the rock is exceptionally rough and grainy and needs a lot more traffic to clean it up. Can be done from a standing start at the same grade minus the awkward moves and half the grain.

Location 

Northwest arete of the boulder.

Protection 

pad, spotter for the balancy moves
