Start low on the arete (which I won't tell you where it is, you have to find it). Move left to set up for the first crux. Cross your right hand to a sloping crimp, and pull to a large slopper. Work your way higher to a few underclings. Make a SCARY last move to the top. Careful the top rounds out and you are not out of danger until you are back on the ground.


A Grip load of pads and spotters. If you fall at the crux, you will hit a large boulder behind you (your six).

Andrew, why post a description to a problem but not give directions? I've climbed at the Bog a lot but I'll never be able to figure out which arete you're describing. The directions to your problem would be a lot more useful than your move-by-move beta description.

Ken Kenney did that arete 3 years ago.

Ken Kenney is the asserted FAionist of dozens of obscure problems all over the Front Range, according to anonymous posts from time to time on this site and others. I suspect you did the FA.

Nevertheless, your problem description still leaves a lot to be desired.

Well, I would love to tell you exactly where it is, but it would be way too confusing! There is so much rock and mazes that it would sound like jumble. The best description I can give is that it is down canyon from the 'bogs project.' Also one of the biggest boulders, just behind indian ladder. If you were to reach indian ladder, keep heading uphill to the very obvious huge boulder. From here tred left on a semi trail between boulders, 'watch your six' should be on your left. The high arete facing the bog. I think I just confussed myself! Anyway, well worth climbing whoever did it first!
