  • Description 

    Great problem, long and pumpy with the business coming at the end. Start matched on huge sidepull jug with high left foot. Traverse the lip of the boulder, eventually topping out around the corner on the huge foot hold. The only thing keeping this problem from classic status is that it's a bit contrived in the fact that you could mantle and exit early, dumbing the grade down to about V3/4. Resist the temptation to do so, going around the corner is worth the struggle!


    The Circuit. Down in the hole behind Planet of the Apes.


    3 or 4 pads to cover the entire length of the traverse, or an attentive spotter/pad caddy

    The original old school name of this problem is Slopey Circ and I think it is a V6 at most.
