Description

Climb the obvious highball arete left of Give Me my Forty Sucka. There is a sit start that adds a few moves but most people start on the obvious jugs.
Slap your way up the arete to the unnerving topout. Hidden crimps and a bit of moss at the top deteriorate the psyche when scratching your way over the lip of this one. A stack of pads is rarely wavered on this classic highball.

Protection

Pads!!!

Nothing broke, its always been like that. The crux comes right at the top and the entire lower section is a real burner. Add to that the highball factor and the change in holds from square cut and obvious, to rounded and hidden and you have a recipe for the current S.Y.P. grade... ("shit your pants")! Oct 5, 2017
I believe some rock broke near the top of the problem, felt significantly harder then other similarly rated climbs in the area. Oct 5, 2017

Didn't feel like a V2. This was harder than Natural Disaster. Nov 12, 2016

Nice problem. Really fun, scary, and underappreciated in my opinion Oct 21, 2013
