The Golf Ball is an excellent, unique problem on an otherwise featureless blunt arête. Start by crimping crystals and tiny seams on the arete with severe body tension, and all around compression skills. When you get within range deadpoint for the "Golf Ball" hold, a little nob out left that actually doesn't really look like a golf ball at all, more like a fat peanut.... Throw your heels into the mix and hopefully you top out, and don't have to take the unnerving tumble back to earth. If you stick the top out and send, you will never forget it. One of the harder compression problems around.
On a boulder stacked on top of the back corner of Alley Rocks. Big, beautiful, tall, and proud.

If anyone can help me out with the guys name that first did this thing I would appreciate it. Pretty sure I did the second a week or so after the FA....

JJ, Not sure, but maybe Brian May or Greg Varela. They were pretty busy around Groom back then working new difficult lines. Just a guess.
