BETA PHOTO: Welcome to the Darkside, The Condo Boulder
The tallest boulder in the meadow. This line follows the 45-degree over hanging arete. Start on low pinch on arete and right on the long crimp rail with left heel in the half moon. 5 hard compression moves lead to a 3-foot throw off of a slopping edge and a 2½ finger crimp to a razor sharp 3 finger knob. A few more moves up and right leads to a high slab top out. Surely a Pine Mountain test-piece. Standing-start is about v7.
Follow faint climber trail up the hill and into a grassy meadow. turn left and walk over the ridge.

One of the best on all the mountain! Still no send for me yet, but I'm working it, getting close... Rad compression moves lead to an awesome giant crux move with a victory slab as the cherry on top.
Nice work putting this up. A neo-Pine Mountain test piece for sure!
