Start on the furthest left holds on the sloping shelf and traverse to the blunt arete, bail at V5 or do a few more moves untill you can reach up to a left hand sidepull with difficulty and do a commiting and difficult barndoor move to the lip. The mantle is not super easy.

This is called Powerstroke. The real NASCAR traverse continues all the way and finishes up the black streak (V11). Mar 19, 2013
I know that the traverse continue, but is powerstroke lance's name? We always called this nascar traverse. Who named it powerstroke. Lance did the FA of the 7 variation. Chris E, local stud, and I did 2nd and 3rd and just called it Nascar traverse if i remember. Not a big deal, but I had never heard of powerstroke. Oct 5, 2013

Sure, this beta comes from Rich Heisler and Fred Berman, who were on the scene from the early days of pond bouldering, as they tell me. We should talk to lance.

Id like names to reflect the first acentionist's wishes, esp. on a NM classic such as this. A lot of renaming has happened at ponderosa! Oct 7, 2013
I think Rich and Leif were working the harder extension and simply ignored the V7 exit. When Lance, Chris, and I visited the boulder, there was absolutely no chalk on the sidepull and it was pretty chossy. Rich and Leif certainly could have climbed it before Lance, they were plenty strong, I just think they passed it up for the harder lines. I was actually bouldering at the Pond before those guys, my friend Kyu, who I gave a Pond tour to, called them up and shared the beta. Then they arrived and helped out with developing, especially in the upper grades. Either way, the problem is great. I just went back this weekend. Oct 7, 2013
will do, Rich and Leif, were only a few weeks behind us. I don't know if I have much to contribute to a guide, but I developed a few boulders that have not been posted on the proj. Oct 7, 2013
