Description

On the right side of the boulder there is a steep face. You can start this problem with the two chalked holds there, but I recommend a sit start for a greater challenge. Continue up these holds until you get to the pebble near the top, then top out.

Protection

Crashpad recommended but not required. Pretty sturdy landing.

This problem could be called the "horizontal seam reach" since the pebble broke a few years ago. I skip the pebble except as a foot hold later. The reach move is more about wing span than height. There are plenty of high feet at the crux. If this was on a route in Eldo, with a bolt at your chest, it would be rated 11a. One of the best highballs on Flag.

I've seen a friend fall twice grabbing the big sloper after the crux reach. It was a nice clean feet first fall onto the pads. And he was fine. Mar 8, 2010
