Sit start left hand on a sidepull and right on a pinch. Make a big move up to a monster jug and then mantle up through.


You will see the huge jug.


Good landing, however getting down after the top out can be interesting.

Getting down is pretty easy. Top out the boulder and downclimb the low angle slab/arĂȘte on the backside. Very fun problem. Being the top half is V2 not sure the little dyno really adds much... very fun either way!

My advice is stack pads if you have enough to get down. the downclimb is actually pretty heady, but totally worth it if youre into a little more of an adventure....super fun climb. Big moves to Big holds
