Description 

Not as hard as it looks and always impresses the neophytes on Mozart's.

A dance up the arete. A sidepull for the left and pockets for the right, with multiple foot switches, lead to a critical heel hook on the left which allows for a committing throw for the big jug - then do a nervy pull over the top on small put positive enough holds - downclimb using the tree to the right.


Location 

Big boulder directly opposite Mozart's Wall - the southwest edge.


Protection 

Pad and spotters

Is there a direct problem here? Using only the pockets?

Jon, yes there is, I've seen Aaron Sandlow do it and Michael Reardon work it, he told me he thought it was about V6. It has a fairly knarly finish.

As an unusual variation you can start the Mozart's Traverse from the left to just before the tree then leap for the start of Quickstep, and finish up that.

What is the problem called and rated that starts right of quickstep and continues out right that tops out with a mantle on a sloper? heard it was a Sandlow problem and that it is rarely done.

Yes it's the Sandlow Problem rated V6, I was there when Aaron did it, both he and Reardon called it V6. I can't vouch for this being the first ascent. If anyone knows better, let me know.
