Start with both hands on an undercling at chest height and establish your feet on the crystals. Move out right to a sharp sidepull, crimp the crystals, and slap the lip. Feels impossible until it feels doableĀ… if that makes any sense.


On the Method boulder between Crystal Method and F**k The Method.


Landing is uneven, so a couple pads are best. Spotters help too.

I was really surprised that I had to lunge for the lip (after the crux), the feet really disappear on this thing. Mar 19, 2014

Great description Julian. Your last sentence is a perfect summation of this climb.

Bizarre, but fun. And kinda cool when it comes together. Nov 3, 2014
