Start with a left hand on an sidepull and a right hand on a sloping rail. Traverse left, and don't let the arete throw you off. You get decent feet throughout the problem. Top out on jugs. This is a bit harder if you are shorter (maybe a V2?).

Note: there is a low start; however, it doesn't add too much to the problem, and there is a boulder in the way that makes advancing your feet a bit harder and more annoying.


Walk up to "High Gravity aka Slots" (just past The Cube), then look right.


A pad and a spotter. There is mostly a good landing except for near the crux.

If anybody has any knowledge of somebody else FA'ing this prior, let me know.... We had cleaned quite a bit of boulders and cobbles from the landing, which exposed some footholds, and cleaned a decent amount of lichen off of the boulder problem, especially on a few key handholds. There was no chalk or shoe rubber when we found it.

This problem in my opinion has one of the the best textures of any problem I've done at Morrison (<V2), north or south sides. I want to give a big thank you to those that cleared the landing zone. Two pads fit perfectly under this problem, and with someone spotting on the rocks, this thing is a very safe problem. Alone and with one pad would likely be quite a bit more bold. The jugs at the end are great, so the high exposure there just adds to why this is really classic line.

May be one of the best V1s in the Front Range? Or at least the Morrison area! Very fun movement for the grade! Beginners may struggle with the beta ,since it's quite balancy coming around the arete. Love the sloper on this problem. Fun warm-up for stronger climbers, and a great project for a beginner, get on this!
