Start as for Who Needs Feet, but instead of following the slopers up to the top out midway across the face, stay low and continue traversing right with a crux cross-through using the crystally, sloping, painful fingerlock. Top out on good holds at the corner of the boulder.


On the same boulder as Who Needs Feet.


Pads, tape, and a spot.

Painful is an understatement. I keep ripping my knuckles and fingertips open and yet I keep coming back.
