Description

Classic highball up the center of the West face. Several starts exist to gain pebbly holds in a seam above head height in the middle of the face. Above this you'll find two of the most amazing big pockets ever. Two options from here: 1) use very small intermediate two finger pocket and/or edges to reach the big key right hand layback several feet above, or 2) make a big throw from the big pockets straight up to the layback. Now the really scary part, holding it together through more layback moves and the 19 foot topout.

Protection

Several Pads and your favorite spotters! This one is high (19 feet according to Benningfield).

this is one of the best climbs at carter. it has some tenuous moves, a controlled huck, jugs, and height. a dont-miss that doesn't discriminate much on ability.

I love to hate this problem. V3, seems a little iffy. I climb v5 and my friends climb v7, no sends. It's fun and scary though. Jul 5, 2006

I wouldn't say any moves are hard on this, but being comfortable with tenous moves way off the deck certainly helps. Nov 14, 2010

This problem has two bolts with hangers (no rings) at the top for the faint of heart. Considering doing this myself to recite the topout for this problem. Apr 27, 2016
