This is a testpiece of sloper skill and balance-intensive footwork. Begin with a right in a good slopey rail and a left on another sloper. Paste a high right foot, rock up and begin the slope-fest. A tenuous, left foot, heel smear and a toss to crumbling, granite texture is only the beginning. A paucity of holds guards the topout from those not willing to fight for it.


Plenty of pine needles to soften your plummit.

To my understanding this was F.A. by Jim Hausmann in 2000. Great problem. A must do.

Great problem, the boulder reminds me of HP40. Really similar footwork/party trick problem to some stuff from the dirty, dirty south. Dec 2, 2010

Good problem, but if you ask me, it's easier than the 4 up the hill. Sep 3, 2012
