This problem is actually smack dab in the middle of the big boulder to the left of "Calm". Although the problem basically has only two moves, a jump and a slap, the holds that you grab and the uniqueness make it a great problem in my mind.
Start by jumping up to the two slopey holds at the lip that are probably about 8' up. From there, paste your feet on (or not) and slap up and left to the big, rounded jug to top out.


Pad and a spotter

Blake had two variations over there. One started right below the sloper you can see to my left in the photo. I can't remember the starting holds exactly, but they were not very good. From there you slap up to the sloping rail and mantel straight up. This was called "The Offering" and is V6.
He also did one a little further left, starting with your left hand on the very obvious, big left hand sidepull rail and your right hand on the sloper at the lip. I can't remember the name of this one, but it was also V6 or so. It could use a sit-start with both hands sitting on the sidepull rail. May 16, 2009
Does anyone know the name/grade, of the problem just to left of jumper? It starts with a right hand pinch and a left hand side pull. I was told it was one of Blake's problems. May 14, 2009
Excellent, I always wondered where this was. Feb 13, 2008
