Pulling the final moves of Saddle Sore.


Wedge yourself in under the center of the overhang on the North face of the lower Saddle Boulder. A few desperate moves getting out of the overhang and onto the blunt arete, then manage your pump while you pull through overhanging jugs to the top. Most people don't start this problem as a true sit start and there are tons of potential eliminates both left and right. Basically, this is the obvious, natural way to claw yourself out from under the overhang.


Dead center of the overhang on the North side of the lower Saddle Boulder.

Fun route! Sit start with a couple dynamic v4 moves. After that, a solid V0-V1 to top out
