Getting the hand-foot match...

Description 

A thin, low-angle face with an interesting high-step and balancy crux. Stand start with a high left hand crimp, and a small right hand sidepull with good feet. Pull on, bump right hand up to a good incut crimp, then use your feet on a few little nothings until you can actually free up a hand. Balance straight up over the bulge to good holds. Fun moves, more technical than powerful, but rarely climbed and the crimps are a bit sharp.

Location 

On the Illmob boulder facing the trail, this is the taller face between the Illmob Arete and the tree. Downclimb the easy slab off the back.

Protection 

Pad, maybe a spotter

Most of the holds on this, especially the better crimp up and right from the start, feel like they are going to break/rip off the wall. Not a bad problem, but the rock quality leaves a lot to be desired.

Not sure when, but I'm pretty sure that both of the crimps broke a little bit since the last time I've been on this thing (like a year ago). The holds felt waaay sharper than last time, which is a shame, because it seemed like it used to be a good problem, but now you are literally mantling on a razer sharp crimp that hurts your tendons and feels like it's going to rip off the wall. I can't recommend this climb to anyone unless they like crimping knives.
