My buddy Mr. Tripp showing his brute strength.

Start with a right crimpy side pull and left hand on the lower pinch of the arete. Bump a few times with the left hand up the arete and then cross with the right to a jug. Boulder on the left is off.


It is on the right side of the road about 40 yards past the last gate to the boulder basin.


Pads, spotter.

Super fun compression! Have a care with the finishing jug, though, it sounded a tad hollow to me.

Gradewise, I think there are substantial condition and height variances. I'm pretty tall and could bump pretty high which I think made things a tad easier. Also, with temps in the high 50s/low 60s and a nice breeze, the pinches felt like velcro. I can only imagine trying this thing in the summer...
