Das craigers cruisin the crimp fest!

This beautiful line (thanks to quarrying) is a great lesson in pure arete liebacking. Core tension down low is the key, especially moving past the crux. Fun topout. A sit start adds a move, but the grade's the same.


Right off the road, same boulder as Dean Problem

Mountain Bro, don't be a jerk and delete your skewed ratings.

Not sure if it was the cold weather, but after climbing in the 40 degree weather, I sent this 2nd try.... as opposed to me trying to make a single move and my feet blow off from the super polished knobs on an "average" day.

Awesome problem!

Truly one of my favorites. It does seam a lot harder then V3 but, who cares about the rating. If I would have to rate it anything it would be classic.

At least as slick as Surfboard Arete V4. I guess it's a V3 even though this is harder for me than surfboard arete. The hardest part is the mega slick foot holds. everything else is just bomber!

This is listed as V2 in the black bible. I'm inclined to agree with that.

Classic at the grade. I don't think it's harder than V3.
