Daniel on the arete.


On the non-drilled side of the A-Frame lies this surprisingly fun arete problem. Start low, move right and use heels and hugs to setup for a dynamic ending. It is also possible to go left from the start for a much more mellow ride (v3).

Definitely felt more like V5 with the right beta and without eliminating obvious holds - might be V6 without using the heel hook around the left. Excellent moves, but I wish it were just a few feet longer! Long sleeves are nice to keep from getting cut up on all the bear hugging.

yeah, if you don't use the large holds for feet out left (including the low left heel hook), the v6 grade makes sense. i think most people (myself included) do a combo of the v2 and the v6.

I think it's more of a soft V6. But, i didn't use the heal hook and kinda dynoed from the left hand arete to the top. I use Short man beta.
