Start compressing the arete with your left on a good crimp and your right in a slopey dish/pinch. Lunge for a right crimp, then bring your left across to a good sloper. Reset your feet, and find a way to get your left out wide. Crunch your feet up so you can stand up to higher crimps and top out.

The fun of this problem is the footwork; the feet are either tenuous or not there till you can get high enough to stand on the face.


This problem is on the south-facing prow of the Stock Exchange Boulder.


A pad and maybe a spotter. The problem is low to the ground, and the landing is flat, so pretty much no chance of injury if you pop off.

One of the best holds on the left is a hollow-sounding flake. Be careful if you pull on it. If it does come off, there are other holds that will make the problem go, but it might get a bit harder.
