Description 

Small, obscure, and probably not at all worth your time unless you are trying to hike and explore GHSP while also climbing lowball obscura. Bring brushes, as these lines dont get any traffic aside from the occasional intrepid explorer.


Metric is a geometric, intriguing block with an awesome looking arete. the holds are crimpy and the arete lip has several pinch crimp moves.

Getting There 

Walk above the Wilderness Boulder and Arete, continue up the hill to find the low, long Night Boulder, and up the hill more to the small but prominent arete that is the Metric Arete.
