Pine Creek Arete

Postby Tom » Mon Feb 21, 2011 6:54 pm

Pete Lowe has set his sights high on a gorgeous undone problem (see page 170 of Southern Nevada Bouldering) deep in the canyons of Red Rocks. While not as high as its neighbor Ariana, at a substantial height the arete features powerful moves which require very specific body positions to execute. Mark Hesiak and I helped Pete lug some pads out to the arete today (Februray 21, 2011); below are photos and video from some of Pete's attpemts:

A tenuous heel hook:

One of the better goes:

Anybody psyched for round two. I'm not sure what I am more intimidated by the pad haul or the boulder problem.
