Description

This problem has been tossing off the best for over a decade. Due to a seeping hold that never dries, it remains nearly impossible. I've seen it dry maybe three times over the years.
Figure out a sequence that starts on lower part of rock and gets through seeping crimp up to good ledge. Top out.
Legend has it that the problem has been done from a stand start with a jump to the second hold.

Yeah one April a couple years ago we were out there with Tre, and had a propane torch to dry the hold off, then he had to wait until it cooled down, and by then it was starting to seep again. He didn't send that day, not sure if he ever did. Oct 11, 2007

Trav, thats good to know. He must have dried the hell out of the hold! I guess it's no longer a project, but I will leave the name Project for now. The grade, I guess only he knows. Oct 10, 2007
