Manny pulling "From Switz".

Description 

SDS low on two crimpers...your right is on a little inseam and the left on a microcline crystal on the lip of the overhang. Your feet should be split by the fin-like rock formation at the base.... Fire off the crimpers with a dyno for the obvious plate.... The crux may be the move to make the throw and pull up over the lip where you started. From here, work up to the mini-ledge with a nice undercling (below the tree that is in the slab now above your head).... It is slab climbing from here up to the tree in a few moves. At the tree, keep to the climber's left of the formation to top out.... Walk off.

Location 

This is located in the Basics of Plundering area...this is to the right of the beginners lines and right of the lesser of the mini-chimneys on this wall...and left of "Shiver Me Timbers". SDS low on two crimpers...slab climbing to top out.

Protection 

Pad...spotter..do what you want.
