DescriptionThis is one of the fine, moderate, bouldering problems in the Alcove. Its overhanging nature and the potential nasty landing (pre-pad days) made it as much a mental challenge as a physical challenge. I understand one fine climber, Geoff, actually broke his back on this problem.
The start isn't too bad. It's the last part of this problem that involves a long reach on less-than-buckets that make it challenging. I've come to understand it's considered V2-3 now, depending on one's height. Pushed to add a bouldering grade by Dave Twardowski, I've added a range including a PG-13 safety rating due to the risk to one's back.
