Description

SDS on sloper and head up with the left hand to crappy sloper. Then get your left heel on the start hold and go up with your right hand to another crappy crimper/sloper by your left hand. Then make a large move to the left to large jug and top out. A Gold Bar Classic!

Location

In the west forest just to the right of Equinox Boulder V3. The Equinox boulder is technically in the clearcut but right on the clearcut/forest boundary.

Protection

Couple pads. Great landing!!

[Hide Comment] Here is a link to Kelly sending Equinox: youtube.com/watch?v=pxYFhyy… Jun 8, 2007
[Hide Comment] Whoa, did you send this rig, Gabe? I thought it was pretty rugged for a 9, anyway. Definitely 10ish. And the landing is a little tricky. You definitely want a spot - I turned my ankle by hitting the tree after blowing off going for the jug. Very fun problem, stays pretty dry, and seemed waaaay easier in low humidity conditions. That said, I sure as hell didn't send it... Jun 13, 2007
