Description

A fantastic line involving big moves between poop slopers, finishing with a dynamic move to a pinch. An absolute blast. Start matched on the obvious jug. Pretty straightforward at first blush, but I found it to be surprisingly technical. Originally rated v11, which is a bit of a stretch, but I've heard it called v9, too, which is a stretch, also. I gave it what seems to be the consensus grade of 10 from people who have sent it because it feels that way to me and because I have paid the price in the amount of skin I lost working this thing and sliding off the slopers...

Whatever the case may be, this is a super fun problem worth doing any time you're in the area.

Location

From the Jerry Garcia boulder, walk uphill and right. It is on the Northeast side of the 3rd large boulder up the hill. There is a stump at the base, and the problem (when chalked) looks like a huge smiley face.

Protection

Couple pads are nice, and a spotter helps assure you you won't get your heel stuck and snap your leg in two.

Starting hold has broken. Still possible just the perfect section of jug is gone making the reach that much larger. Nov 15, 2011
