This often overlooked problem is a great way to test your huggy-bear meddle.

Begin low on the fat, blunt arete, and hug your way up using crimps, gastons, slopers, being careful not to scrape your chin on the rock directly in front of your face.

Finish the problem at will, as both sides yield similarly difficult exits.


To the right of the start of the Nemesis Traverse by about 100 feet is a short, squat boulder with a low, sloping roof behind and to the right of it (this roof problem, is a fun problem in and of itself.). The start is on the right side.


One pad will suffice

this was named after the first ascenionist -who i saw send the problem several years ago. I never got his name but he was a professional fish tank cleaner. Funny thing was - he was the second fish tank cleaning climber i've know - first was dale bard at BD who spends years doing this while bumming around cali.

Is this the arrete climb on the boulder that leans back to another boulder making a cave with a stream running through it? Climbs up the arrete til your back is right up against the boulder behind you.

This is apparently a double post. This is the line also posted on here called Outhouse Arete on the Outhouse boulder. The Kemple guide refers to this climb as the Outhouse Arete.
