A fun little problem with great movement for the grade. One of the best of the grade in the cliff boulders. Start about 3 feet right of that dreadful v6 crimp problem matched in an incut seam at the base of the arete. Using small feet and interesting layback moves, work your way up the sharp arete to a sloping ledge. From there, you can perform a somewhat exhilarating beached whale to topout.


In the upper uppers (to get there, see the last part of Christian's informative comment under the Cliff Boulders) you will see a striking sharp arete about 10 feet right of VTR and 3 feet right of 'Good Lord!'.
