Mike moving up and gaining arete.

Quincy and at least parts of rattlesnake are state natural areas and thus closes to climbing. Please respect the ban.


Sit start on large holds. Move up to thin sidepull, get your feet up and huck for another large hold, move up and grab arete on right, gain crimp or sidepull and make large move to top.


about 30 feet above Easy Arete.


pads and spotters. The landing is ok until you get up about halfway. If you dryfired from there, you'd probably miss the pads and fly down the talus.

A classic arete climb. Just be careful topping out. Stay solid and don't punt.

Pretty cool and overhanging most of the way. A bit more scrubbin on the top moves and this thing will be classic.

If you recall sir, you handed me the brush when I topped out and I scrubbed the top holds pretty good. I'd say this thing is clean.
