The throw to the lip


A Classic hardman problem! Start on good hold at base of overhang and make big moves to good pinches. Technique and power get you up this one. Top out right along the lip.


Just downhill and southeast of the BR trail and EB trail junction. See directions at Bulbous Left.

This climb is so burly. The moves are all there, but it's full on!

Instantly fell in love with this today, a little hard to get to, but worth the hike. Unique overhanging roof climbs are an anomaly at the lake and this one is fantastic from start to finish. Although in the talus, the landing isn't bad. Congratulations goes out to Remo for putting this together on a warm wet March day.

Another train on this thing today with Gnar, Keith and I doing it. Funky to get the beta right but real nice when it comes together.
