Matching the crimp, this and the next move are whe...

  • East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    Stellar looking line that improbably makes a reasonable boulder problem. Multiple place you could start, the lowest of which would involve a series of long pulls on positive edges while exposing yourself to a poor landing with evidence that some of those edges have crumbled.

    However, if you start from the middle landing area from a high right edge and a seam the rock is very good and there are only really 2 moves that feel exposed. From the crimp work your way up the seam until you can reach out right to an edge in a horizontal, then punch up to a buggy rail. Move up past another rail and jugs at the top.

    Location 

    on the wall at the head of Comanche Canyon. Head up the slab/ramp on the right side of the wall to a landing about 50 feet up.

    Protection 

    Pads and multiple spotters to move pads around.

    Listed as a Bob Murray TR in the Sherman guide. Not sure who bouldered it first or where the official start is.
