Starting Gyroscope. I think Jonathan Kingston took...

Description 

A 3-move Pine Mountain classic, proving that less is often better. Originally done as a "Gill start" (one hand on the rock and jump in), has been done static as well. My vote is that the original jump in way is better.

Location 

Left hand in bullet-hole crimp/pocket, one foot on and jump to the sloper up and right.

In this case, less IS better. Perfectly constituted rock. Over the years, I've noticed this problem really favoring certain body-types over others. Regardless of your "type", you have to press pretty hard to finish this off.

Gyroscope, an all-time favorite. The Pine Mountain classic boulder problem with the legendary Ratso spot.
