Climbs the mountain-facing arete. Start on the sloping left edge of the boulder, grabbing on where both thumbs sink into a nice divot. Move up and right, on small crimps and pockets, and throw for a good flat hold at the top of the arete. Finger intensive. One possible variation involves mantling early, skipping the last throw. A SDS, first attempted by Nick Chavis, was finally put down by Paul Robinson at V9+.

FA: Hiro Watanabe / ★★★☆
