    On the Citadel Boulder it is the far right arete with a small scoop at the start, it starts on two of three crimps and climbs up to a jug rail and topout. Don't fall in the summer. You may end up in the creek.

    Start has broken as of two weeks ago.... I just saw the damage, sorry, all the parts of the start are gone, no more glue wahoo!

    I ran down to the boulder to try Surface Tension, the starting holds had been busted off and laying right under the route. Bummer! Maybe it will still go, but it's way difficult now.

    Continue up the sloping arete left to the apex for the "surface tension extension".
    Fun, big-ish move at the end.
