Location: on Hank's Boulder. See "Hank's Lunge" for more detail on finding boulder.

This problem starts low on the black face and climbs the crimps that are directly right of an arete. Scarface is left of the problem "Fuck You Finger" which climbs black face to the two obvious slopers 7 feet up the wall.

Start sitdown with right hand on small crimp. Move left and up to more crimps, to sloping lip, and then up and right to decent hold. Topout and descend tree.

This is a great, little, granite, crimper problem.


Flat landing.
Hey Climbers!

The Daily Beta here! My buddy and I have created some short beta videos for ultra-classic moderates in Northern Colorado and wherever we get the chance to go crush! Let us know if you found these videos helpful, interesting, entertaining, or (perhaps) unnecessary or even a joy-kill.

Please feel free to comment on our youtube page or e-mil us at We really appreciate the feedback! Keep crushing it out there, y'all!… Nov 15, 2016

Rumor has it one of the start holds broke not too long ago. Didn't affect the problem really, just not as sharp now. Apr 7, 2010

There is also a V8 version known as Natural Tattoo that uses the same holds and goes by the same sequence. It is way harder than Freaks of Nature V14 (on the Freaky Boulder, Lower Chaos). Oct 6, 2008
