Ericas Arete

Ericas Arete is a small boulder with a obvious arete that the trail goes right by. This short little problem looks very easy from the base. Its when you get on Ericas Arete you learn quickly that the crux is throwing for the top holds. SDS and  your way up to the horizontal crack that splits the base to the arete. Maneuver onto the arete and your left hand utilizes shitty crimps and pockets. Your right hand throws to a small intend sloper 2-3 fingers. Don’t bail out left or right stay directly on the arete proper. Great problem and kind of a test piece for this area.
