Description

Multiple different sequences can get you through this interesting overhanging problem on solid (and somewhat sharp) granite.

Mind which holds you use - some are better than others depending on the size of your fingers.

Location

Start at the horizontal crack on the left side of the Visor. Follow the juggy lip holds on the arete 'till you get to the final jugs at the apex of the visor. Mantle up and you're done.

Protection

Spotter, Crashpad(s)

Great looking problem upon first inspection. The boulder itself is easily noticeable at the base of the wash after going up off the road towards the lookout tower. Let me say this, I have NEVER been shut down by a v3 like this before. One thing to note, VERy sharp holds. they HURT! right hand ring finger right after my first knuckle i had to man up and tape up. the climb itself is cake up to the very last "mantle" move. i could not do it. trowing a heel up in every which direction it was very hard. one note i did find it to be easier was the last hold thats like a dish make sure you are able to match then take your left hand and rotate it so you can "push up and away while pulling with your right. closest i got to topping out. good luck! its a good little climb just can get your frustrated and cut you up.

Mantle is far and away the hardest part of this problem at least for us taller folk. Worth doing once. Once. Aug 8, 2007
