Description [Edit]

A Classic! Middle of steep face, start on jug and get high up to small crimp, establish and gun for the lip. Super fun problem with stretchy moves. Seen few accents.

Location [Edit]

Middle line of main boulder.

Phenom line. A sit down from the left, and a long sit down from the right could probably be done as well for even more fun.

As it is, I think it's starts naturally from the sidepull crimp from a stand. Pretty rad. Could use a bit more brushing along the rail at the lip. I was on a night session on it tonight, and had a blast. I'll have to go back to stick that last move! JWilliams

PS- At least two pads are preferable. Three might be the best with a sloping hillside just off the landing. Oct 22, 2008

I climbed the money V6-7 and a line left of it when I found this boulder. Did not do sit starts. I never brought anyone there, just told T. Kieck about it. I remember being bummed that there were not more jems like this in the area - one of the best problems in the state in my opinion. Feb 14, 2009
