Fun, albeit sharp moderate. Start on incut rails to the right of the base of the arete. Climb the good, sharp incuts to the top.


Not too far from Pocket Hercules (V8). A wee bit hidden. Just look for the V2 crack climb on the trail side of the boulder. See picture for details.


1-2 pads.

I onsighted this and don't usually flash V5s so I suggest V4 as well. Fun little problem!

Very fun, but definitely soft for the grade. V4. Somewhat concerned that the first crimp up from the start is nearing the end of its days.
