Climbing the Goblin (V4).


This is a dang challenging boulder problem. This blank arete seems at first to defy climbing, but there is a way. Crouch start with an undercling on your left hand and use creative holds to work up the arete. A sloped, one-finger pocket is a good hold for this problem! A successful ascent usually requires a fingertip gaston, a full-on rock hump, and a lot of cussing and head scratching.


This is on the blank, rounded arete on the right side of New Mexico Boulder's west face.


A pad and spotter.
