This is a nice high ball problem that isn't filled with technical difficulty, but it requires some commitment to finish. A good way to work on your arete climbing skills. On the left side of Flake 2 begin by placing your left foot onto a ledge and left hand on a low hold. Both holds are facing Right Side Arete. Step up and reach for a good hold around the corner to the right with your right hand. This is a very positive hold. Step up and reach left for an unseen hold. Move up with the right foot now standing on the positive hold around the corner to the right. Move your left hand up a bit more staying on the arete (This is the arete closest to the overhanging underside of Flake 2). Paste your right foot on a small sloping edge on the underside of Flake 2. Step up on that hold and reach a long way for a horizontal break and relief. You're not done yet. Now traverse on the horizontal break to the right on the overhanging section of Flake 2. Go all the way around to the right side Arete of Flake 2 and then downclimb to a boulder and off.


Flake 2 is right next to Flake 1. This problem is on the arete closest to the main wall facing Flake 1.
