Start with your feet on the back wall and move up the blunt double aretes to the lip and jugs. It appears that you can work your way up with either hand to the lip, I went right, using a heal hook. No more than 3 hard moves to the jugs.


Just left of the wedged block starting on 2 pockets at the lip of the overhang on the blunt arete feature.


Pads, there is a rock for your leg to land on and one for your head and both hit since you are horizontal.

Started on the pockets for Sabersonic, and worked up to the lip. It felt on par with v7. MUCH easier if you start at the lip jugs.

The start for this line is a sit start at the two big, obvious pockets in the bottom left corner of the protruding face with your feet on the back wall. It's at least V7, if not a bit harder, from that start.

Holds are pretty bad. Tried going right hand up to the small sloping crimp. Didn't really figure out what to do from these. Maybe I'll try a right heel hook. One other climber was try a right toe hook in the back, it looked pretty good but he made no progress.
