  • Description 

    SDS on positive edges, and make several hard moves up to the positive horizontal crack, utilizing toes hooks and sidepulls. Two more large moves and a small, right hand crimp will get you to the top.

    Eds. What is described here is the sit down start to what is known as Bob Horan's "Northeast Reach", and the "Blunt Arete" is a sandbagged version of the Horan Face, as described in the Benningfield/Samet guidebook.


    One or two pads.
