Grade Route

Start as for "Seams Hopeless" and climb the L arete.

Sit start at the bottom left and climb the obvious crack/seam which starts horizontal and becomes diagonal.

Climb "Seams Hopeless" until the horizontal break just below the top, then traverse this all the way to the R arete.

A good introduction to Felltimber as the landing is good. Start standing at the good holds in the middle of "Seams Hopeless" and go straight up.

Sit start on sloped right hand edge and good left hand crimp directly below 'Hopeless Boulder Direct'. Big move to the seam. Follow 'Seams Hopeless' to top out.

Crimpy. Sit start at small edges between "Seams Hopeless" and "Leatherman" and climb up without using the crack of "Seams Hopeless".

The R arete of the Hopeless Boulder.
