  • Description 

    This is a good warm-up for the harder climbs. When facing the rock, start on the arete on the right side near the bush/tree. Match on two good holds with your left foot down on the big knob and the other heel hooking above. Cross over to a nice hold, and go up wide to the next crimp where you can match. Finally, gain a positive crimp higher back with your left and get out of the pool. It is a little dirty up top on the walkoff. Walk off as you would for the other climbs.


    Pad and a spotter.

    I've done this problem as well, dirty, but unfortunately we probably weren't the first.
