Starting out on the Surgeon.

Description 

Classic Boat Rock slab. The crux for me is the third or fourth move up on the slab using the tiny crystal to the left and feet smearing.


Location 

Heartbreaker is located at the entrance to Boat Rock, around the Easy Crack area. The Surgeon is the blank slab line in the middle of Heartbreaker.


Protection 

Crash pads.

This is one of those slabs that can seem way harder in June then January, V5 in bad conditions, V4 in good conditions

I agree. Easier problem if below 50 degrees and less than 50% humidity (V3+). Hard to keep feet planted when warmer and more humid (V5).
