Description

Start on the large positive undercling on the left side of the boulder and crimp your way up the short prow. Dave did the FA but a foot broke a year later and made the problem harder.

Crash pad.

You sit down start, two hands in large right undercling, and then go up. Oct 8, 2004

Start matched in the undercling. Plenty of room for two hands. Oct 6, 2004
Seriously, what is the right hand starting hold? Oct 6, 2004
Uhhh...let's see. I was a little drunk, details are fuzzy. I think it was left hand, thumb down pinch with two fingers, pinky smear,ring finger half slotted into a divot. Right hand thumb up fore finger and pinky squeezed together in a "hang loose " sort of position. Both feet swing over your head, right foot heel hooks a juju bee shaped nubbin, left foot smears big toe under a razor sharp undercling. Now comes the crux.........flip your nutsack under your left armpit, reach around under your spotter's left knee, and snatch the uber-thin flake out left on the lip and flop up onto the top in utter triumph. You've done it, now you're good enough. Now you can stop this madness. Oct 5, 2004
What is the right hand starting hold for this problem? I know you start with the left hand undercling, but what about the right hand? Oct 5, 2004

For me this still a work in progress. I have to mention that this problem has one of the worst footholds on the planet and makes the Undercling Traverse at Flag look like a boardwalk. One of these days... Sep 20, 2004
