Description

Sit start, left hand flake, right hand pinch. Climb out the middle of the face. Everything is on but the crux is at the lip. It's a long reach up to a crack on the slab top out.

Location

This problem is located on the Mile Boulder. It is the second boulder you come to after the first cluster. It's on the right side of the road. The east face is overhung and there is a nice bench facing the problems.

Protection

Crash pad.

There was still a lot of snow, and it was very muddy, but I got it after four or five tries. Psyched to finally get this. The snowbank was still so deep that the topout wasn't very high off the ground. In fact, I just jumped back off the boulder onto my pad after topping out. I will post the picture. Super fun boulder.

Put this on your ticklist! Great climb and cruxy top out. Want to flash it? Here's the beta, don't screw the mantle top out! HINT: Throw a high heel hook, lock off, and shoot for the slot edges. Enjoy. Sep 3, 2012

From the sit start, try going left hand first to a crimp...easier than V5 this way if you ask me. Sep 30, 2010

There is very specific beta for topping this one out without having to put your meat into it. It involves high feet and good lock off ability. Mar 1, 2010

Maybe I should have tried that, it might have given it up without so much of a struggle and it could have been more like a beautiful dance.... OK, enough. Jul 14, 2009

I assume then, proper etiquette would be to buy it dinner first? Jul 14, 2009

It helps to put your meat into the rock for the topout. Groveling and humping are also useful techniques for getting over onto the slab. Maybe a cup with a patch of stelth glued on. Jul 13, 2009
