One of the best highballs in the park, this obvious face climb sat either dormant or unclimbed until late summer of 2011. Start on two good edges to the right of Cream and pull up to a slopey undercling in the dihedral. Stand up and reach for a left crimp (this move is shown in the photo), then bump your hand up the underclings. Slap up right for the decent hold at the lip and decide whether or not you'll commit to what comes next. Pull up to a sidepull crimp on the low angle arete and rock up onto the high slab. Gather your nerves and continue up the arete to the top.

For the full line, tack on the two move sit start, or traverse in on Sauce for something much more difficult.


At the top of the hill on the Big & Tall (Hemlock) Boulder to the right of Cream. Downclimb Cream or the corner/arete to the right of Maxim.

This problem is outstanding. In my opinion, this is the best of the Round Pond highballs (with the possible exception of The Whip). Great movement with a high level of commitment needed.

Possibly on the softer side of v5, but four stars all the way.
