The main event on the Obscurity Tour. Begin on opposing sidepulls at the base of the blunt arete and make a tenuous move up and left to a unique rib-like crimp. Adjust your feet and make a dynamic move right to a large, juggy hueco. Match the hueco, check your spot and prepare for an exciting finish. Aim up and left for a fingerlock in the seam and use tricky footwork and positive thoughts to clear the bulge and hit the lip that feels desperately far away. Full value on quality stone and tucked far away from the regular circuits on Flag.


At least 2 crashpads and a spotter you trust with your life.

Go do this thing! It has to be one of the best lines on Flag. Great rock and even better movement! Here's a little video my friend Drew threw together of the problem. Well worth the hike down the hill.
