Start sitting just right of the arete on a good crimp, from there move up and pinch the arete just above a hold that is tempting, but the arete is better for the future moves. From here rock out to a small crimp with your right hand, then pop to the top, do not top out drop off.

It is over quick but packs a punch and the rock is sharp, the texture reminds me of P-way.


Just right of umbrella boulder on the quartz block this is on the right side of the right arete starting on single pad crimps about 2.5 feet off the ground. it is also the only line on the right face of this boulder.


Pad and spotter.

my friend alex and I got on this yesterday, but we didn't use the arete. I gastoned the second crimp and then moved right to a bad hold and popped to the top. Alex hit the gaston and dyno'd to the lip. But why not top out? we did

Until fairly recently, this boulder had a large tree laying over the top of it and a tangle of limbs and vegetation hanging off on all sides. Which made it very difficult to actually top it out. Which is why very few people did. In its current state, that is no longer an issue.
