Description

This powerful problem climbs out the center of the steep face on the hidden side of the boulder (where most of the problems are). Start sitting down with two bad slopers. From there move up with your right hand to a good gaston, then reach up to a small crimp with your left hand, grab either a small crimp or a bad pinch with your right hand and find the crucial drop-knee. Fire up to an okay sidepull and fight to get your feet up and over. Then, top out....done!One of those problems that doesn't look like it should be that hard, but then you try it......

If the drop knee doesn't work for you, try getting a heal/toe with your left foot on the start hold and a high right foot. Jul 30, 2010
Love this climb. Blake recently got it. Great job Blake. This thing is solid. Like Greg says, looks easy, but... Dec 31, 2003
