Description

Start sitting on a smaller boulder (about 2 feet high) on a left undercling and a right crimp, with a left heel hook and a right toe under the boulder. Bump up left to another crimp then make a powerful move right and then up, or just go straight up from the crimp. Mantle the finish.

Used to be harder until the starting crimp broke and got bigger!

Location

On the rounded corner of the balance boulder. Balance boulder is the obvious orb balancing on some smaller boulders at the top of the hill in the area. This route starts just above a few smaller boulders on the right side of the boulder.

Protection

You will definitely want some pads to protect the uneven boulders at the base of the route, and some spotters would be nice too.

Really cool boulder, but doesn't climb nearly as good as you would think. Sep 2, 2016

yeah i repeated it this way. i thinks wicked powerful but the problem is anyways... i think this needs to be down graded because it can be done so many different ways suiting most peoples styles.. Aug 30, 2009
I found it easier to do it in one move but maybe that's because I'm shorter.

I've always used a heelhook, which I've found makes it so much easier that I now start the problem one-handed and do everything statically, but I can't see that beta working for everyone. I'm guessing most people do this as a 2 move problem, left to crimp, right to top, which is far easier than using the sidepull flake out right, but in my opinion, less enjoyable. Jul 13, 2009

alternately i used a toe a little closer to my body than where most heel hook. i thought it made the move less powerful (if possible) Jul 11, 2009
