This problem is in the shade all day. Once you enter the meadow, hike up and left on slick slabs and over a boulder. This problem starts in cave down and to the right on huge huecos to a difficult throw to a delicate topout.

nice variety, steep and technical and several ways to do the start. Aug 29, 2007
Just a little history: The original name for this one was Mr. Negative, in the Negative Cave, but Lobster Claw is a good name too. Pete Z did it first, then also me and Scott Leonard. We found it one day out hiking around looking for new problems. FA: Christmas Break 1991/92 Sep 16, 2012
I saw on a facebook post that as of January 2016, some dude broke the lip jug at the top of this problem. I imagine topping out will be much harder with there being a sloper up there now. Anyway, this is a super classic problem.

Update: The problem is still very doable even with the broken hold, you simply trend more to the right up at the top of the boulder. Jan 5, 2016
