Quinn hitting the sloper on 'Ketron Classic' v4

Description 

Start low on sidepulls, do a move or two up to the left-hand undercling and make a big stretch to a big right-hand sloper. From here use either the intermediate left-hand crimp, or dyno for the bucket with your left hand (crux). Top out with jugs.

Good movement, great fun.

Location 

On the northwest (up-canyon) side of the Savannah Boulder. See topo on previous page.

Technical with a distinct crux moving through the big sloper.

Difficulty may be height dependent on this one..

I think good beta is key - with the correct sequence it goes down fairly easily.

For some added spice, eliminate the left large hueco... pretty fun!

Looks like it would be height dependent but it's not. All about core tension and footwork.

The bucket has a sharp lip - so it's best to not wildly flail at it.

In Flip-Flops.

One of the best routes on the planet. Don't bump right past the sloper to the jug on Kling and Smirk, if you skip the dyno, you're severely cheating yourself out of a heroic move. People love this one, so expect company. Sometimes insecure bro's come do this in flip-flops and think that's cool.
