Swinging Richard Direct (V2), Joshua Tree NP


Start at the southwest corner of the boulder with both hands matched on a large incut jug (same as for Swinging Richard) and then launch up the rounded arete above. Balancy and sometime reachy moves on this enjoyable problem.


Pad, a spotter is nice

The problem is spoiled by the easy options out right. It seems kinda forced to avoid the big reachable holds.
