Description

Sit start on the arete on the backside of the boulder. Pull on edges and work up using gastons and body tension and topout this great climb.

Great climb for a friction heavy day, miserable if it is humid.
Top it out straight above the start.

Location

Right side of the Valley Boulder. Right next to the trail.

I too enjoyed this climb very much, really fun movement! I think it's a little stiff for the grade if you start same as Rubber Cement, but a solid v4 if you begin your right hand on the target hold for the first move. Sep 26, 2016

This is a very good boulder problem, surprised it does not see more assents and receive higher accolades. I highly recommend this climb. Apr 11, 2014

This problem doesn't end above the start. Sit start on the good edge on the arete (common start with Rubber Cement), move right on small crimps and the good diagonal rail, then continue up and right on more small crimps and small feet to get a jug at the lip about 6 feet right of the start.
