Stand-start matched on a crimp and make a reach up to a high right-hand gaston. Climb straight up with another gaston to a perfect jug on the lip. Balancy, technical, and fun.

A good techincal problem, although I thought it was easy for the grade.

Really enjoyable movement. However, I actually thought this thing was incredibly tough for the grade, even with good beta

This is not a gimme V3. Very foot work intensive and fun.

Euan takes steroids. This thing is pretty technical.

Pretty tricky if you haven't seen someone your height complete it. Absolutely the shortest approach yet!! Hurrah for fun warm up boulder.

You can also go out left with a good side pull. However, the right beta double gaston is the way to go for a fun route.
