Chris cruising the Keymaker.

Description 

Start at the bottom right corner of the Beautiful Soup boulder on an undercling and edge. Work your way up and left until you get into the start holds of Beautiful Soup. Do the moves on BS to reach the rail but instead of traversing off right continue straight up to the top of the boulder using a very small, slopey crimper.

Location 

Located 1 boulder uphill from Alpine Club.

Protection 

Bring lots of pads/spotters.

Second ascent today by strong Nic Oklobzija. Good work Nic, so psyched to see this thing get sent. Nic went on a rampage today and ticked off a bunch of hard Lake classics.
