A sit-start to Slope a Dope. Make a series of thrutchy moves to sloping crimps and don't fall off the slopers at the top. The bottom right handhold has been glued. Seems pretty tough.


I guess I'm assuming you have the guide. Find Slope a Dope and you've found the problem.


None. You hardly need a pad.

Pulled decent chunk of thin right side-pull off last month. Might be a tad sharper now. Still goes, still rad.

It's funny how this one seems to have become a pretty popular problem, as I never really gave it that much thought.

This obvious sit-start to Slope-a-Dope was first done by a Swiss crankenfrank named Mike Tscharner who stayed with us for a while. He named it 911 because that was the address of the house that we lived in after we got booted from The Castle. He'd heard some crazy stories about our lifestyle back then (from other mutual Swiss friends), and I distinctly remember when he called to get directions after arriving in the USA I told him our address was 911 and he spurted out, "You're joking?".
