Fulgora V8.


SDS on the very bottom of the crack on a nice big starting edge. Stay in the crack all the way out to the lip. First two moves are the crux.

...the bottom seeps a little bit for a day or so after a good rain.

-The big start hold that made this line a v7 in 2010 totally broke off a few months afterward. This line was re-sent summer of 2012 and the first 2 crux moves make it v8ish-


The huge crack to the left of Paganish Arete (to the very far right of the boulder).

Yea, the starting hold may have broken some since I first sent it....but im pretty sure that doesnt change who did the first ascent :)

(not "some", the hold does not exist) but your right Travis! Same problem! You should come out this summer and climb it again for sure...

in the very beginning right to the left side when looking at the crack there is a small crimp rail...on or not?

There is too much stone out here for eliminates. Crimp whatever you like!
