start on on either double underclings or right hand on jug left on undercling. up right hand to high sidepull match, then up to seam. From here you go left hand out bulge to a flake. Highstep right and go to top or small intermediate and to the top. match carefully, then reach back to good seam.


backbone before execution boulder and get the hell out of dodge boulder.

Good problem...again the name is certainly appropriate. Two years later, still be careful at the top. Broke a hold that certainly wasn't key, but was a convenient little undercling. Took a ride and left a nice deep shoeprint in the soil. Apr 19, 2010

This route is really fun but still be very careful. I felt really sketchy putting all my weight on the big jug near the top. Super fun though, go do it! Oct 31, 2015
