Description [Suggest Change]
Big moves on crimps lead into a gaston, a pocket, then a jug before topping out a ways off the deck. Like the sound of it? This problem is rarely touched and probably a whole grade harder than it's neighbor, Maxim. Sit start as for Maxim on the flake and the crimp, make a big move up and left to the next crimp, then figure out how to get into the giant gaston up and left (look for a hidden right hand crimp up high). Using the gaston and a sidepull to the right of it, work your feet and cross up to the pocket before grabbing the horn of Maxim. Top it out. Techy, tricky, and really good.

On the Hemlock Boulder (Big & Tall aka Hilltop), this problem starts the same as Maxim. Downclimb to the right of the problem.
