Really cool arete with an incut seam/rail running about 2/3 of the mid section. I couldn't top out as I didn't feel good commiting with only 2 pads and no spotter. I can't say exactly how hard the top is once the seam dies out, probably 2 or 3 hard moves. Most of the problem is probably V1-V2.


This is 1/4- 1/2 mile down the road from deGaulle's Nose free route on the right in an opening.


3-5 pads; 1-2 spotters, a rope would be nice for getting down.

It's been done, as well as 3 or 4 other problems. Very cool boulder. Worth the stop.
