placing a draw from the nook...

Description 

Wickedly-pumpy jug-hauling out the roof start, big moves and swollen forearms. This leads to a weird mantel into a little, pretty comfy nook capped with another roof move, but do not despair, this is the last hard move on the route. After mantling, follow the bolts up the 5.9 slab to the chains.

A really fun climb, though if power and reach are against you, it might be more challenging. I found it to be pretty easy when I was climbing and training in the gym a lot, but now that I've gone all techy it is tough. I did find a totally static way to do the crux so work it out to your personal strengths.


Location 

Starting on the usually well-chalked holds on the right-hand side of the cave and traversing up and left along the roof.
The start may be wet from seepage.


Protection 

8 bolts to anchor.

It is not a bad idea to preplace the first few draws if you have a stick clip. The stone on the ground is very close. An attentive belayer is a must. A very fun route requiring burl and balance

I agree with Mark, I've seen someone dropped by their belayer right onto that rock!

Pretty cool video shot from a couple nice angles. I never thought a kneebar pad was an obligatory tactic for this route, though.

glad you liked the video...

i explain the kneepad/kneebar in the video description saying something like i know you dont need it but i just love kneebars and i had a new pad my friends and i wanted to play with...

though you dont need it i found it made that first move much more relaxing and fun which is how i like to climb...

Sorry. I didn't bother to expand the explanation of the video on Youtube until a few moments ago. Is this videography thing a new calling for you and future MP posts? (Might not be a bad idea...)

This is my favorite flash so far. I think stick clipping the first two draws was a smart idea, because falling onto the rock would have hurt. You get a really good rest in that corner if you lay down...
