Using the arete, climb the southeast slab with decent feet and nothing for hands. Very stiff V0.


Crashpad to cover the small rock.

I've always thought of the SE slab as being a little bit left of the line in the photo. Regardless that is indeed a very stiff V0.

Indeed, it is possible to climb on the other side of the corner and perhaps directly up the blunt arete as well. Benningfield describes the Southeast Slab as "a small slab four feet wide on the southeast corner". The line I featured in the photo seemed most obvious to me but try them all.
