Start on the right side under the overhang and climb the right side arete using sidepulls on the left dead point to a small jug and grab sidepull under the overhang on your left and top out. A harder sit start may also exist. The rating is open to discussion.


It si located on the Black Pearl Boulder on the right side of a large boulder with vertical crack and two bolt anchor on top. The large crack is visible on the right side of the fire road.

There is a line in the left arete on this boulder that I did a sit to yesterday. Totally fun. Oh and got the sit start worked out. Just need to the top.

One more move and this thing is sent. That will be the 3rd V7 in Milford I've done.

Awesome climb. I got the sit start yesterday from the slopey left hand and slopey right hand around the arete. Feels like V6 maybe. Not sure if it's been done before.

The sit has been done many times and the consensus is V7.
