Description 

Fingery, sustained, and powerful start lead to a spicy finish. Good pad placement and spotting, however, can make this problem quite safe. Lots of dynamic movement and body tension.

Location 

the far left, and shortest, line on the main face of Fight Club Boulder. Sit start with left hand on a scoop and right in an undercling two-finger pocket, another two-finger pocket awaits the right after you pull off the ground. Burl your way straight up and watch that landing zone!

Protection 

pads and spotters

Really cool holds and fun movement, but really low to the ground, don't let your feet come off or you are on the ground.

This feels a full grade harder than Rubber Walrus, no? Plus I busted my ass falling to the first move.

It should be noted that the lower part of this boulder has had loose rocks removed, and this problem no longer starts sitting.

The new sit start to Space Monkey was done yesterday. SDS down and left on arete, climb into Space Monkey: First Rule V10 ***, FA Keenan Takahashi
