Finishing it up


Start with hands on the edge of the giant sloping scoop. Follow the lip of the scoop up and right and then back left to finish on obvious patina jughaul. Climbs better than it looks.


Extreme right on the west face of the Cave Boulder

Pulling off the ground on this felt stupidly hard to me and the rest of the people in the cave last week, but it may have been the warm conditions that were shutting us down on it.

Heel hook your left heel and it becomes about V6.

Not the problem it once was since both starting holds down left broke of the scoop broke off.

FA was Dustin Sabo and Vic Copeland
