Jared LaVacque on Moth to a Flame V9

Description 

A really cool problem that crouch starts(or stand for 2 less moves, but no added difficulty)with positive small edges to two slots. Then requires precise footwork and two key footholds, to balance under the bulge while making a reach to a tip shredding non-existent right hand side-pull. Make the dyno to the slot jug using left hand on the starting slot slot or a small crimp. Lock off on the jug slot and reach a series of small edges on a less than vertical slab, then relax and focus up small crimps and edges to the top. The crux is pulling past the little bulge and hitting the crimps to the dyno move to the slot.....and then rocking up to the slab. Bring your "A" game and precision.


Location 

Start on low crimps and move into the bulge and then follow the right hand crimp and small left hand intermediate crimps to the slot and top-out. See route photo for reference.


Protection 

The landing is great, but 2-3 pads are great because of the height and potential to cut loose at any point.
