Description [Edit]

Squat start in diagonal undercling rail, move up to two good crimps. Head up using some small slopes on the left and underclings on the right. The crux is squeezing hard enough to bring your feet up high enough to reach the final pocket. As with its neighbor to the right the sit start does add some difficulty but just isn't that fun.

Location [Edit]

Face or very blunt arete just left of Testtickler

yea, you should have seen my bounce off of it when the undercling busted mid way up the route. I would have landed 6 feet out in the woods, instead I dropped right in the middle of the pad:) Oct 5, 2008
