Felicity climbs an overhung arete on perfect edges over a poor landing. The movement is superb!

Sit start with a left hand sidepull on the arete and a low, right hand, sidepull edge. From there, stick a right hand edge, follow with the left hand to an edge at the arete, bump the right hand up to the next edge, bump the left hand up to the great edge-rail, reach a right hand on the opposing arete, place a left heel hook, cross over onto the arete with the left hand, tic tac up the arete, and top it out.


It climbs the northwest facing overhang arete on Nova.


The landing is good, but not great. There is a large rock that shares part of the landing, but it's fairly benign and pads nicely. Three pads worked well.

Man, if that doesn't look like a line that has your name written all over it...nice find. Reminds me of Awoman in terms of aesthetics (not its overall shape obviously).

You know I've got a weak spot for compression, Jared. This gem really floats my boat!!
