Description

Climbs the dogleg crack on the NW corner of the Eliminator Boulder, same crack that Left Eliminator and Meathook finish on. Start on the far left (N) side of the West face and climb up on jugs into the horizontally traversing crack. After reaching the dogleg in the crack reach back inside the crack for more positive holds. More of a faceclimb on a crack then a crack climb. Watch out for the block below on the last moves = don't fall.

From Alan Nelson: On the left side of the north face of the Eliminator Boulder is a shallow crack. Face climb along this feature to a distant top out. There's a good pad zone beneath it to protect the most interesting moves near the bottom. Messing up the easier moves above would be hazardous to your health.

Eds. note, this is a combination of descriptions to reduce duplication within the database.

Protection

A tad high, spotter and pad nice.

Had to go to the doctor after climbing the (Dogleg Crack) because it was so sick. Oct 7, 2011

Brett is correct, as far as I can tell. The photo of the top-roper looks like it's on the crack that traverses right from the arete. The problem in the current photo is fun and manageable (mentioned elsewhere), but if you're looking for easy grades, this is a bit burly and/or exposed. Both problems are very fun, though. And yes, peeling from the top would suck on either problem. Apr 4, 2009

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the picture posted here is not correct for this problem. I believe it's of the Dogleg Crack problem which uses the same horizontal crack as Left Eliminator. Feb 13, 2009

Very fun. A must do, even in hiking shoes it can be done. Jan 30, 2006
A little photo editing next time would be nice. Feb 17, 2003
