This problem has frustrated hundreds if not thousands of would-be ascensions over the years. It is the obvious attraction near a clearing southish from Bolt Rock and near the 307 trail. Steep overhang about head height with an obvious left leaning crack cutting through it. Grab the crack and yard up to crimpers, then either pop your foot up and mantle to finish or do a long hard pull. Either way it will take you about 200 tries before you finally get it.

Sit down start has gone and is likely V8 or V9.


Clean your tick marks or do not use them at all!


Clean fall on flat sandy ground.
