Description

This is one of the more classic camp 4 problems. Not as sand bagged or as high as midnight lightning but a little more crimpy. Defiantly my favorite Yosemite problem. Avoid the crimps to the upper left of the boulder as they are not part of the route.

Location

The boulder is on the left side of the trail and the problem faces north east. It should be chalked up pretty good.

Protection

A crash pad would be nice

First ascent by Ron Kauk in 1984. This was the last and hardest problem to come out of Yosemite's "traditional bouldering era".

Frederic Nicole was the first person to flash the problem in 1993. Actually, he onsighted it with no beta or chalk on the holds. Would you expect anything less from the Swiss powerhouse? Apr 4, 2013
