Description

Power your feet on and begin throwing, slapping and heel hooking along the lower lip till you can wrap around the end to top out. Originally graded V8, it is now cleaner and stickier and appears to be easy for the grade.

Location

Not in the guidebook, you can find this route on the Studs Boulder right around the corner from Spear Point. A beautiful overhanging prow that requires open handed upside down fridge wrestling technique. Ooooohhhhh what fun!! Begin with the left hand pinching or crimping the arete and the right hand fighting a slopey undercling pinch.

Protection

Rocky but mostly flat landing with a surprisingly small pad foot print. Two or more pads will protect those nasty back slaps.
