Description

WARNING: THIS PROBLEM WILL KILL YOU IF YOU SCREW UP! To the right of Adrenalyzer is a leaning obelisk sitting on a ledge. It looks like a good push on the backside will launch it into the houses down the hill. On the overhanging south side is a line of jugs separated by big reaches. The thought of climbing those jugs raises the spectre of pulling the obelisk over on top of yourself and being crushed like a bug. The line is obvious, compelling and terrifying. Even if the obelisk stays put, the moves are hard and committing, the ground a long way away from the crux (at the top), and the landing nonexistent as the hillside drops away. This is no place for posers or wannabees. The rush of pulling over the top is indescribable, but the consequences of failure will leave you puking in the bushes. My advice: JUST SAY NO!
