DescriptionThis awesome singular prow problem on perfect rock is a 3 move wonder in between easier sections, but man, those are 3 killer moves.
Teasingly easy entry moves lead to two height-dependent crux sequences. For most taller people like myself, its a wild lean out right with the right hand to a sloper-type thingy utilizing a left heel hook. A left hand power up to a bulbous crimp sets you up for the big, flying move to a killer jug! Match and crank off a few knobs and small but positive plates up off the deck, to the blunt top out.
Other people may have to match hands on the bulbous crimp (YIKES!!) and continue.
IMO this is a height-dependent rating...
This boulder problem is sooo good, it got me psyched to get my pads out of storage!!
