It's easier the higher you start to the right.


If you can, start low as possible, by the bush or the little stump/root at the bottom. If not, come in from the side just slightly higher. Work your way up mostly the center of the slab to the top. If you must use the arete, use it minimally.


1-2 pads.

Has anyone done the direct start? We messed around on it for about 15 minutes, pretty tough.

The rotten stump came out when I stepped on it! Now you can do the direct start with a nice flat landing!
