"Elevated."

does it share anything w/ slapshot, or is it pure arete?

if arete [since i have no interest in the holds the constitute slapshot], what does holloway's original line go at?

perfect timing on the shot!

The problem is right of "Slapshot" by 10 feet on the NE arete. Last year it saw a little traffic via a cool jumpstart, and since Jim had no name for it, we just dubbed it "Elevator." It is a slightly more worthy now that it starts static.

**typical flatirons disclamier**
Will may have done this move before.

Also, Paul tried Slapshot from a logical low start, but there was just too much glue behind the key hold to even use it.
