An aptly named problem, this problem goes up a series of sidepulls to finish pulling over the bulge.


Sit start to the right of Center Visor on the corner. Climb the bulge via sidepulls.

[Hide Comment] Does anyone know the original sequence on this problem? There are a lot of holds and seem to be a few options to end up at the corner bulge finish so just curious what the original or "accepted" sequence is. Sep 25, 2012
[Hide Comment] I think it starts lower on the sloper rail in the crack. It's a more challenging start and could be the reason why some people feel it is harder?
I liked this one more than center visor though, it's pretty sweet line with some pretty cool holds and satisfying movement! I also recommend the lower start. Apr 1, 2018
