  • Description 

    This ultra-classic lowball starts on the obvious holds at the base of Tommy's Arete and heads left across an amazingly perfect series of crimps and sloping edges. A heart-breaking crux awaits at the end. Basically it is a V10 into a V10, power-endurance all the way.


    It goes across the east face of the boulder.


    A couple of pads is plenty.

    Angie Payne became the first American female to climb a confirmed V13 with her ascent of The Automator in August 2010, after seven days of working the line and during only one season.
