"Driftwood" direct V6/7. Also known as t...


Awesome problem, if you're in shape for serious crimping. Starts on matched crimps at chest height, and gradually eases in difficulty as you go. Upper moves are shared with the left variation.


Alcove above (to the south of) wounded knee. The problem faces north.


Pads/ spotters. At least 2 pads, or one big one (an extra pad folded in half underneath is useful, as the narrow landing shelf slopes away). 2 spotters help, too, as it's possible to tumble backward off the ledge.
