Description 

Ouch!
Crimp and power your way up this demanding face using deadpoints and precise feet.
The topout is huge (thank the goddess)

Way Hard for the grade(hence the V5+)


Location 

Away from the trailside of this boulder. climbs straight up the face.

Protection 

Pad and an attentive spotter to grab you before you hit the rock with your back and before you slide down into the pit and bash you face on the boulder.

Start matched on the sloper under the little overhang on the right edge of the boulder.

Finally sent today! A very gratifying send. The beta is very precise, but once you get it down it makes sense at the grade. One of the best boulder problems I have ever done.

Arguably contrived as one could easily use the arete for some of the moves to make it easier. Also, the sit start doesn't really add anything quality wise to the climb (would be as good or better starting matched on the shelf). But, ignoring those small flaws, this is an incredibly aesthetic climb with perfect crimps up a beautiful wall. A must do!

Finally got this problem today! First try in the pouring rain. So satisfying to tick this looooong-standing project off.

Is there any beta on the climb that actually uses the arete to the right? It's such a cool feature, and I'm sure would be a quality line by itself...
