Description

Sit start on a rounded jug and a sidepull and balance/power your way up and left to slopers for slab topout.
The starting foot will find your shins if you aren't careful.
Hard for the grade, but fun and friction dependent.

Location

Right of When I'm On My Own.

Very odd climbing. Definitely a bazillion ways to do this one. Fun! Jul 21, 2016

Definitely a shin-scraper. Cool little problem, though. I could get the first move, off the sit-start, but then I struggled to move left and up.

It's a strange and difficult sequence! Jul 29, 2014

This problem is better than it gets credit for, is frequently used as a warmup, and may seem a bit stiff. Sit start on a left hand jug and a right hand sidepull crimp. The starting foot is large and obvious. Pull off the ground, grab a nice right hand sloper with a thumb-catch, and reach up left hand for a crimp. Work your technique on crimps and slopers to get your feet up and rock over onto the easy slab. Apr 11, 2008
