Description

A sloping lip traverse. Sit start at the lowest part of the lip with both hands matched and a heelhook right on top of them. Slap out the lip on non-existant holds to gain a jug at the arete. Follow the arete to the topout.

Friction dependent.

I did this yesterday (my first v7) - I found that the difference between it being really difficult to get to the good holds at the end of the lip and it being pretty manageable was my initial heel hook placement - the farther to the left (the direction the problem climbs that is) that I could place my heel the easier it was to reach good holds to bump it along.

I essentially had to climb it twice because the first time I hit the wrap-around jug on the arete my heel hook slid off and I dabbed my friggin pad - the 2nd time I managed it clean. Feb 19, 2012

Fun little problem. Not long, not tall, but surprisingly enjoyable. Aug 5, 2008
