Mid-crux

Description 

Climbs a highball scoop with a low crux. Sit start with a sidepull and the jug. Stand tall to reach a L sloper, heelhook, and grab a gaston just above the sloper. Work slopers & crimps through the scoop heading left towards the obvious jug. There is a hidden jug just right of that hold. Follow a crack/jugline straight up to a high topout.

Always dry up to the finishing crack.

Location 

This is on a large boulder/small crag between Lakeside Crag and the stream. The starting jug is always white with chalk.

This climb is really, really good. One of the best problems at Pawtuckaway, in my opinion.

Footage of this problem begins at 9:44

I agree - this thing is amazing! THE best boulder problem I have ever attempted, and definitely in the top 5 at Pway. If there was a five star rating on mountain project, this would receive it from me. Everyone should do this climb!!!
