The beautiful arete and crack!


An easy, fun highball with a low crux. Stand start (or sit) the arete, and climb up and right to gain the juggy crack. Once you're in the crack, continue up and right on great holds although the ground gets further and further away. Topout and have a seat before climbing down.


Yosemite Boulder (El Cap). This problem starts on the arete facing the trail to Devil's Den. Downclimb through the large chimney system.

Super fun problem! But probably a v2 instead of a v3 as posted.

Really good. The start hold is kind of sharp, but the rest flows great. The upper jug crack is gold!
