A hard problem following a line of crimpy layaways on a 45 degree wall. Starts matched on a pinch/sloper and bumps up through a series of crimps to a final throw to a sloper (or a jug, if you manage to huck past the sloper). Great rock and cool moves. And it's usually dry because it's so steep.


The huge boulder perched on top of another boulder to the left of the Fin (an obvious boulder - you'll know it when you see it).


2 pads are nice - you slap your back pretty hard when you fall - but you're only 2 feet off the boulder behind you the whole time.

Cool problem. Feels more like a 9 to me than a 10.

Def a 9. Even the guide book calls it out as a 9.
