Amazing arete!


Start low on the arete and climb up and out slab.


Just left(south) of the Prow Project. Downhill and south of Massive Vertigo by approx. 50-75ft.


Pads and spotters.

It's not bad, but not great either. With a stack of pads and a couple solid spotters it should be ok.

If you go out to the south bluff, hike up like you are going to the ejaculator, but then traverse east into the talus, you will find a boulder a little bigger than this one at about the same angle. Its pretty easy to see if you are in the area

This picture surely does not do this line justice. It is BEAUTIFUL! the arete is like sculped to be pinched and slapped. really pretty line. rough landing as it stands. and not much to speak about for hands on the face. there are these slight dimpley slopes but nothing much. we ran out of time so we didnt get to try it.

I noticed that there is potential for a couple other great lines on the right side of the boulder. I tried the starts to both, but without many pads(or spot) I didn't commit, nasty landings and needs more cleaning.

Yes Nic, get on it!!! You might want the rope to clean. There is a few other lines on this boulder to the right that should go as well. You should also try the Half Dome project and the Falling Pieces project, both are good and hard, oh and send the Prow while your at it.

I climbed a high quality problem on this arete the other day that finishes left on the slab. I started sitting on a rock low on the arete. It's V8, very good, and now is called Astral Projection.
