Johnny on "Alive Arete" (V2), Mid Boneya...

Description 

When looking at the main, long, blank face, this is the arete corner on the left side that works up slopey ledges.

Sit start matched on an overhead ledge. heel hook and slap your way past slopey ledges to the right and across the corner of the boulder. once you are at the top of the boulder, roll over for the top out (continuing all the way to the notch where "Eaten Alive" ends is unnecessary).

Not a must do for all, but if you are in the area and this is your grade it may be. Flagging, heel hooking, slopers and an intro mantle to rap things up keep it spicy for someone adding to their bag-o-tricks.
