Bigs on Chiseled Sit (2/16/2014).


Start with your left hand on a small crimp and right hand on a sidepull underneath the feature. Pull on and enjoy some fun, awkward moves.... Your left hand moves to an obvious left hold, then work your right hand to the arete and SQUEEZE!!! Match the arete and top out.... Moving around the arete is awkward and awesome.


This is the sit down start of the Chiseled Arete.


Mash mats... a couple will do it.

Anyone try the low low left start? I just cleaned off some holds and it is awesome. 4 or 5 hard compression moves get you into the start of chiseled sds. Probably around V10 if anyone want to come project it with me.

Lots of campfires have been lit under this boulder and others in the area. Lots of stuff had definitely chipped off the bottom of the boulder. Nothing crucial to the SDS has broken, but it looks like a sidepull for the low ~V9 start may have.
