I'm submitting this route as a plea for help. I can hardly get off the ground on this thing.

Perhaps someone who's sent it can fill in the beta?

As I understand it, grab the blocky slopers on the southeast arete, get your feet on somehow, and dyno for the top of the arete.


This is on the Southeast arete of Mongoose Block.

Not sure on the location of this problem. A photo may help. I have done most all of the problems possible on this block. I will try to post some photos and info on problems soon.

I made a typo in the description- this is on the southeast corner, not the southwest as I had originally said. Right on the arete at maybe 7' is a blocky, chalked hold. Match on this, get your feet up, and throw for the lip. I've realized now that it helps to be short, it's just too hard to get your feet high enough otherwise. At least that's my excuse.

That location sounds right. The starting hold and the finishing hold are both actually on the arete in between those two areas. It may not be dynamic, but it looks like it, and that's how I've heard it described.

Looking forward to the photos, I've been thinking about doing the same thing.
