This is a one move wonder. Sit with poor feet, use an okay left hold and sidepull for the right. Then a big move up and right to a decent, somewhat sharp, flat spot. Once you stick it, move up and left on obvious holds and much easier moves to the top.


This is in the main area, 50 feet from the Bots, 30 feet from Revenge.


Single pad is fine.

Fun, except for the grunty first move. Nov 11, 2010
More fun to just skip the first move, and it goes at like V3. Aug 9, 2011
Where's the fun in skipping moves? You could start at the rail on Tommy's as well if you wanted to. Any problem could be made into a V3 by skipping the hard moves, but where's the fun in that? Aug 9, 2011
I disagree, Jason. Just because a lower start CAN be done doesn't always mean it SHOULD be done. If the lower start is much more difficult and/or much less fun than the rest of the route, I think it's a better route without the lower start. That being said, if someone's looking for more of a challenge they should by all means do the lower start. Thousands of existing boulder problems could be done with a lower start that was difficult, unpleasant and/or awkward enough so that everyone has decided not to. I think this route falls into that category. Jul 23, 2015
