Seth Calkins on the East Face of the Hone Stone.

This is the very crimpy line amongst the aspens on the east side of the boulder. It is a very direct line with a standing start on 2 good crimps then straight up on credit card edges and small feet. The grade is a pure guess, give or take a few either way.


1-2 pads, spotter.

This line is more of a V4-5. Definitely not a V 7-8. It isn't harder than Atomic Tick Fever on the opposite side.

Probably V5. Definitely not in the ballpark of the climbs on the other side. Last time I climbed this we had to clean moss off all over the face. Not sure how much it gets cleaned anymore.

Definitely a V5 for the on-sight attempt...V4 after you have done it enough.... There is a fun, non-descript line to the left called the Blunt Arete which is a quite challenging V7, and the line to the right is still far as I know.
