surfin on the arete

(AKA: Double Arete) The Crux comes when throwing for the obvious flat section towards the top of the Arete. Small holds and feet lead to more promising climbing at the top.

A few different ways to do this one depending on your ape index. Definitely a fun one that is worth doing again and again.

This climb is known as the Surfboard Arete, for obvious reasons. Excellent V4.

A hold recently broke on this problem. The "arrowhead" for the right hand near the start is no longer there, but it is now a flat edge. I personally don't think this changes the grade (maybe easier if anything).
