Description

One of the best problems at Gates Pass. Pumpy, with fun movement. Start on the well-chalked jug and traverse right with marginal feet, then mantel at the end of the shelf (or keep traversing around the boulder - it gets easier as you round the corner.) Crux is hanging on toward the end.

Staying below the lip bumps it up to V3.

Location

On the north face of smaller upper boulder (opposite side from the big undercling problem.)

Protection

Pads. The boulder beneath the traverse makes spotting a little awkward.

IMO, the best problem at Gates, and totally safe, even without a pad. Crux (for me) was an awkward match in a sinker but weird/uncomfortable pocket. Yes, it's an eliminate - but it's a pretty logical one, and the movement is awesome. Dec 23, 2009
