BETA PHOTO: Instinct. Stand start on the big rail, then climb ...
A classic problem that starts high and finishes higher with big, insecure moves. The rock is a bit lower quality than most Stone Fort problems, and this can sometimes be wet. Nevertheless, the movement is great, and an ascent is always exciting. Start halfway out the chalked rail on a big left hand flake and your right on a slopey crimp. Make a big move out right to an incut spike, then up to the lip. After pulling the lip, move left into the chimney and head back into the Biggie Shorty corridor to get down.
In the "Back Nine" area, walk right around the Graham Crackers boulder, then continue straight along a faint path between boulders (don't go into the Biggie Shorty corridor), about 50 feet past Graham Crackers, Instinct will appear on the left in a tight corner.
