Jack on Slapper


Tons 'a fun. Hug the opposing slopers on the arete, then slap, heel hook and high step past the big round feature to a jug at the lip and a pretty mellow topout.


Just above Bolt Rock on an adjacent boulder, this climbs an obvious arete feature right of a scoop.


A pad or two and a spot, it is good not to fall when you are topping out.

I think this one is also called "Hug a rock".

We always knew of it as "The One Hand Slap" or "The Sound of One Hand Slapping".

Luke, That's called The Scoop V6. Got it from Brent Edens (if memory serves), not sure if it had seen an ealier ascent, but that's what he called it. Don't you have the new guide?

Is there another variation listed for this problem, to start lower with a dime-edge for the right hand then work up to the "starting sloper"? I've done it a couple times, definitely makes it a hard V2 or Good V3 I think.
