Sit start with a high pinch on the arete, get your feet sorted and then work up the arete to a gritty jug and finish with an easy topout. An easy downclimb exists on the west side of the boulder just right of this problem.

Fun moves on rough and unique rock - it would get another star if it wasn't so sharp.

Be careful there is a very loose hold on this problem! Probably wont last through another winter.

Can't imagine what that loose hold would have been as it's years later now, but the problem is still in good, climbable shape and is pretty damn fun to boot.

Strong opener, sequency feet, satisfying body positioning and flow.
