Description [Suggest Change]

This cool problem is reachy. It starts midway through the undercling traverse. Start with the left hand in the obvious undercling and right hand on a bad sloper. Throw your heel out right and start slapping up the bulge on some very difficult reachy moves.

I believe you begin matched in the underclings.Body tension is key through the entire problem. Nov 6, 2003

This problem was originally done by Bob Williams in 1969 starting with both hands on the rail and trending left to the top. Because the ground has eroded ~24 inches, today most people start with LH hand on the undercling and RH spanned out to the bottom of the rail. IMHO, the way it is generally done today is hard V6.

Several years later, in 1974, Jim Holloway started this problem matched on the good undercling. This problem has historically been known as The Holloway Direct and most people agree it is solid V7. Nov 7, 2003
