Nearing the top


Start on the uninspired arete, half way up the move left onto the face using a good crimp and poor feet. Crank off of this and make the very long reach to the diagonal crack to your left. Follow this crack to top out. Really a one or two move wonder.


On the right most of the three highball slabs. Start the same as the uninspired arete.

This is super fun but very but hard to grade. Would be super tough for anyone under 5'8'' but not so bad anyone over 6'.

Thanks so much you did a great job. I can't wait for someone to do the direct start to that crack, will be hard.
