Description

Start on the E side of the Fairview Boulder with two pockets (SDS) just in front of the tree. Move up to a small crimp at the lip, then two more crimps on the top of the ledge. The difficulties ease after you mantel over the lip. The crimps look too small (for a V3) but some key holds/sequence will allow you to send this one.

Protection

Crash pad not necessary as the crux is low, but the topout is around 18ft.

by "key sequence" do you mean, using the gigantic ledge under you for your feet? Aug 7, 2007

The true SDS to this problem does not add any more difficulty and IMO makes the problem more complete. I'd say around V3 from the bottom of the leftward-slanting crack feature. Sep 18, 2016
