BETA PHOTO: The very hard one mover on the swirley boulder


This is a quick one-move wonder for those with a big wingspan and strong fingers. On the face on the backside of the swirly boulder, locate the unusual black triangular pinch. Grab this with your right hand and find one of two sloping dishes out left for your other hand. Put a foot on the wall and dyno for the sloping lip of the boulder. Catch it and top out. It takes nearly a six-foot wingspan just to grab onto the starting holds, so the grade is arbitrary at best - it's v-impossible if your reach is too much less than 6'.

Pads and a spot.

I don't really understand why this boulder only gets one star. The rock is good, the holds are cool, the movement is cool... is it just because it outrageously favors the tall that it should get less stars? Ridic. There is nothing that detracts from this bloc.

It's a hard one-move problem on a boulder with several more famous and aesthetic lines. No surprise to me that it gets no respect.

maybe more famous, but not necessarily more aesthetic.

I've spent a lot of time on this thing and although I've hit the lip multiple times I just can't keep my right hand on long enough to control the swing. I recently starting trying this from a jump start and it is way harder than I expected. Grab the R hand starting hold and jump to the lip with your L. Has anyone had any luck with this route from the jump start? If so how the heck do you match the lip on this monster?
