BETA PHOTO: A few moves into the Awoman problem on Mistress Bo...

Description 

Awoman is a superb arête problem that climbs great rock over a perfect landing.

Sit start at the arête with a left underneath on a large jug and a right on a small crimp at the arête. From there, work along the arête on the crimps to the prow, then make some compression moves up until finding a good foot-edge. At that point, rock onto the slab's shelf, and top it out.

The crux for this one lies toward the end with the compression moves. A shallow left hand bump with a great thumb catch makes this go, as it allows the right hand to slap up to the decent relief up high on the arête.

Location 

This ascends the East-facing arête of Mistress Boulder.

Protection 

A few pads, very good landing though.
