DescriptionFirst off, I'm not sure this is the correct name for this problem, so if anyone knows what it is or who did the FA, feel free to submit a change or let me know and I will.
This problem is on the Northeast corner of the Pebble Boulder above an exposed tree root. One can identify it by a seam with two handholds that angles down and left; these are your starting handholds. To start, put your hands on the handholds and get your feet up; however, you like it-some use a heel hook, other just use a toe under the 'hang. From here, blast up to the sloping ledge above, and then grunt your way up and over the bulge, mantel-ing as you go, utilizing if need be the next sloping ledge above. I personally like to put my left foot on the starting handholds and then rock onto it for the mantel.
This is a classic scrape your legs and stomach problem and a must do for Flagstaff firsters.
I give it two stars, because no one else will, and because it's such a battle.
