Description 

This problem starts sitting on a good jug. You maneuver yourself under an overhang, moving right, with your feet on a slick rock slab and try to stick the severely sloping crimp-rail with both hands. Then, for the crux: you shoot a hand up, blindly grasping a very sloping, but nicely textured open hand grip. More hard moves ensue, possibly making use of a heelhook to the right, eventually moving up to a nubbin that is a couple of feet above the sloper. Moving left can reveal more sidepulls. An awkward move to gain the slab finishes the hard part. The slab above is still not trivial. THIS PROBLEM IS AWESOME!

I love this problem. Probably my favorite in the park. Without giving too much beta, the heel hook comes earlier for me than in the description.

Took me about a year of on-and-off effort to send, and I still daydream about it.

Mike, I match the sloper and go right hand to the peanut-shaped edge first.

Super dissapointed; my fault I guess. Snuck in a quick p-tuck trip in while on business travel and picked this problem based on the guide book rating. It's a 6' tall one move wonder (at least in the summer... That's my bad again).

Since this is supposed one of the best in the area... I won't be coming back. Sorry guys.

Well, your choice, but you would be missing a lot of great climbing. I think Dopeman is a good problem (It was better before things broke), even if not anywhere near the best. Still, calling it a 6 foot one move wonder is not too accurate IMO, and one rushed visit to Pway will not give you a good feeling for the huge park at all. If you had been able to explore around some, you would have found plenty of amazing problems and beautiful settings.

At this point, I've done both the left and right variations. They're both fun, and I use very different beta for each of them. (There's a million different ways to climb this problem.)

Though less popular, in my opinion the right variation is the better of the two. It's cleaner and more aesthetic.
