On the left side of the steep south face of the Happy Boulder.

Sit-start under the lip of the small cave, just under the big hueco, with hands using either the left side of the hueco or either of the two thread pockets inside the hueco. Climb straight up using any of a number of tricky sequences to the perfect four finger jug hole just below the lip, top out straight up. Classic!

[Hide Comment] Disco Diva starts in the thread (hueco), not below it. Felt like hard V8 to me, but I went righthanded to the jug on the send just before realizing that going up left is significantly easier. Mar 26, 2008
[Hide Comment] drop knee. drop knee. knee bar. toe hook. wild jump.

even after a few hold have broken, this is still one of the more fun problems out there.

for the jump... if you're tall it's easiest to go left hand. if you're short, however, it's easiest to really crank down on the miserable left hand crimp and go right hand.

oh... if you latch the jug you REALLY want to control the swing. flying off that hold after the swing is a good way to get hurt.

SUPER fun.

(oh... and to those who say it's a height dependent jump problem... I'm 5'5"). Aug 11, 2013

[Hide Comment] It used to be soft at the grade, but then the first right crimp after the threads broke a bit and this makes releasing the knee bar harder. Mar 4, 2015
