Description

Climbs the traversing, aptly named crack on the main ridge above the Eliminator boulder, just right of the Finger Ripper. Start at the lowest left portion of the crack, lieback, jam and otherwise climb it to it's bifurcation and either take the high or low version of this crack.

The low version follows a horizontal finger crack, with one's feet just off the deck. The higher version leads to another horizontal seam.

Variations, do a different problem ... the Gill Reach (V2 - highball and height dependent) off a distinct undercling or traverse right to another problem Easier Reach (V0+) off an incut, or climb right on the final horizontal seam and traverse right to an easy crack (topout or downclimb this).

Protection

Climbs above a few rocks, a good spotter and a pad will be nice.

Even though this route is very easy it is still really fun! Amazing holds and it flows really nicely. Definitely check it out. Apr 20, 2014

Agreed. A great warm up or first climb for the aspiring boulderer. Mar 28, 2010
This is the problem I take almost everyone on the first time I take them bouldering. They seem to enjoy it Aug 11, 2009
This is a great problem for someone trying to get into the bouldering scene. This problem can also be fun if you travel back and forth on the route. See how many times you can loop it. Mar 10, 2006
Sorry; This doesn't even qualify as a boulder problem; that is unless V0- is the same as 4th class ! Jan 4, 2002
