Description

On the overhanging East face of the 'Solarium Boulder', start either squatted on the big "banana hold" (V7) or as a harder SDS on the underclings (V10). Bust some hard moves out to the lip utilizing the pinches and ribs.

Either version is a sought after prize at the Happies.

Protection

A pad should suffice.

the original (V7) version is kind of lame, especially after the sit was done.

super coarse for the left hand and thumb.

kind of frustrating for those with long legs as it's hard to control the swing after the move to the banana rail without dabbing.

worth doing if you've done most other stuff. Aug 11, 2013

If doing the sit a couple of pads would be nice as the moves matching the start hold put you right over a rock lump. Jan 19, 2009
