Stand start on jug at above head height. Put on feet high on nubbins, deadpoint/dyno to next jugs up, Put feet on jug, dyno/deadpoint to next jug. top out straight up.
This problem will scare you with its height and the level of commitment required at first but it becomes easier witht he more pads you have!


Backside on Ride the Lightning boulder.


Climb up boulder before doing climb to brush off topout !!IMPORTANT!!
Topout in lichen covered and pine-needle covered.
Have multiple pads and multiple spotters or don't fall!


Careful of those holds, particularly at the top...they're creakers. Other than that, this problem is highly unique and exciting! There are about four big holds on this thing other than the lip. They're all about four feet apart, too. Awesome... Sep 12, 2007

Look for a hidden left-hand gaston at the top. It makes things a little less spicy. Dec 1, 2013

Sadly the 3rd hold let go this weekend (in the form of a perfectly NH-shaped flake), leaving the extremely slopey left side of the hold. We did not try the route this way, but it would be significantly harder than the original grade. Dec 4, 2016

I climbed this route today by traversing way right on similarly friable holds and topping out on some good slopers. Probably not as good as the original, but it still goes. I’m wondering if Up was affected by the breakage as well. Nov 11, 2018
