Son of Hands gollums out from a shallow cave and finishes via perfect edges on a clean slab face.

Sit start with hands matched on an obvious jug in the cave. From there, move right to an incut edge with both hands, walk the feet over and make a big move to a perfect crimp on the face, set the feet and make another big, static move to a three-finger crimp (crux?), then paste a foot on the face, make a stab for the lip or cross over with the right, and top it out.


It ascends the east face of Arcadia. It shares the same start with Paleocontact.


A pair of pads will do, the landing is good, but there are a few rocks below the problem.

Nick has put up yet another beautiful boulder problem in Unaweep! Congratulations again on having the "eye" of the Be-boulder-er! I was psyched to be there for your send!

Be-boulder-er....that's clever, I like it. Thanks Jared. It was equally impressive watching you put it down with such ease!
