John Porensky fishing for holds on 'Sheepherder'

Description 

Really fun climb (kind of a highball). Climb up on some good knobs and crimps into a tall, shallow groove.
Focus on footwork and make some balancey moves to top out.

Location 

Prominent black streak to the right of The Rising

Can you say sandbag?

HUGE sandbag. The first moves are for sure tricky. And it'll scare the bejeezus out of you, despite being a perfectly safe landing.

My first highball! Didn't seem too out of the grade for the area. Crux was down low, but the topout scared the bejeezus out of me, especially because the last hold was a reach for me. A really fun, obvious route up a great boulder.
