Good arête style problem similar to the Prow at baldy just shorter and easier. This problem would be classic if it had one more move on it. Start with your left hand in the pocket feature and your right on the sloper. Move up how ever you can and get the good but sharp crimp side pull. From here move right foot into pocket and get the big crystal dish up top....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
