Description

The bottom has nice jugs/edges to get to the middle of the problem staying on the left side to center but once past the overhang the small tiny crimps, edges, and pinches come out to play. Straight up a little to the right.

Location

On the Bone Ridge between problems #15 and #16 there is a huge boulder problem that has no info on it. There is a broken tree behind it big tall face on corner

Protection

None. 2 spotters and 2+ pads you will need

Just did this problem... it is very tall so it is heady, but i would call it V2. Still a bold send though. Apr 29, 2007

Great line, highball, heady at the top, but agree with the V2, maybe V3. No way is it V6+. Aug 10, 2007

One of my favorites at the area but not V6. Kept expecting it to get hard and it never really did. Good V2/3 problem though I was a bit sketched out with one pad and no spotter... Nov 1, 2007

i changed the grade and gave it a name. i hate problems without names. if you have a better name or an actual name that kelsen may have given it. hope no one minds the changes. Jun 21, 2008

Be aware of possible bats in the upper finger crack. I encountered one and nearly shit myself trying to find another handhold as it was chirping up a storm. Luckily the arete was conveniently in reach. Would not have been a fun place to pitch off... Sep 22, 2014
