The Arbiter is an imposing highball. Most of the front right of the boulder is really tall, leaning to slab at the top. The front left is in-cut over a sloped "patio". The front right is where most of the established lines are, and they both are quality, somewhat scary highballs. One problem being "Really Highball" with a low crux, and the other a standard 20 foot highball with a heady crux top out. Bring your head game for the Arbiter Boulder!

Featured Route For Arbiter Boulder

Arbiter Arête V3 6A  Virginia : Grayson Highlands State Par... : ... : Arbiter Boulder
This sweeping arête is too good to pass up!On the far right side of the Arbiter Boulder you will find the curving arête lip that trends up and right ending with a slopey, slabby, easy finish.Sit start on the low, far left end of the bottom of the steep lip. Find the biggie-sized chunk for your left hand and start with a low right hand on the lip. Work up and right, staying well under the arête until you can paw up through easier slopers to the slab finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
