Start with a toe hook around the side with your right foot and a low smear with the left. Reach up and around the face to grab the sloper with a thumb catch for your right hand and a terrible pinch for your left is on the rock face. Pull yourself off the ground to gain a good crimp with your left hand Then get your right foot on the better knob and bring your right hand up to another sloper. Get your left foot on the terrible pinch and stand up to a good horn/jug thing and work your feet up as you go. After that the top out is kinda funky with a not so good sloper and smearing.

Have someone throw your shoes up to you and walk off the far side of the boulder. It might be kinda like a shimmy down.


Once you find The Steepness turn to your right and you will see an arete. You climb between two little trees to get to it.


2-3 Pads and spotter

I very much approve this name. I laughed almost as hard as when you broke that hold and punched yourself in the face...

I didn't think it was funny when I punched myself in the face. Oh wait, yes I did. Haha!
