Hill's Thistle

Description 

SDS on low holds just to the right of the Cedar Arete problem. Instead of moving up and left, use the long, sloping arete to go directly up. A big move right off the start gains a decent section of the sloped arete from which you can move to a crimp for the left hand after locking in some heel or toe hooks. Once you move off this crimp the difficulty eases for the top out.

Location 

Found at the base of the over hanging arete on the Cedar Arete boulder, which is just behind the Crab.

Protection 

pad for the first big toss
