Description

In the cave of the Freedom Boulder is a poor crimp. Using this with the right hand, jump left for the lip. After some heelhooking, a somewhat sketchy finish up the slab, just left of the corner proper. A more direct finish exists going straight up the corner.

There has been debate about this problem's rating. I suspect if you are much shorter than 5'8", you are going to take the V10 rating.

Protection

A few pads. The landing is uneven and rocky and the slabby section is awkward.

There's an awesome V7 variation that starts with your right hand on the crimp and your left hand and foot on the lip. Super core intensive but an amazing problem. Feb 10, 2009
