Description

Just left of the problem called Unknown on the G-Friend Boulder (see [Girfriend Traverse] for location) is a great SDS problem. Start on the obvious and cool sloping rail and chuck to another obvious hueco then use [anything] else to get to the jug and the mantle. The problem is right behind the tree beside the G-Friend Boulder and is easily [visible] from the trail.

Agree with the above comment. Using the heel hook start, this is pretty moderate. Too bad it isn't longer. V3-ish with left heel on at the start. Apr 6, 2011

Sounds like a cool way to start the problem for sure. By suggesting 1-star rather than 3, I was not trying to take anything away from Bart or the problem. I actually enjoyed it, but it is just a 1-move wonder, awkward or not, that is a grand total of 7 or 8 feet high - Peace Jul 3, 2002
If you start with your heal matched with your feet on the rail, the first move is not awkward, and the problem becomes rather fun. Jun 28, 2002

if this is the problem with the awkward lurching starting move from a sds, it is not v6, nor does it deserve 3 stars. in my opinion, one star ... hard v4 ... v5 at the hardest Jun 28, 2002
...one can also go from the sloping rail all the way to the top(fish bowl to the left). Bart Aug 25, 2001
