Description

This problem climbs the right side of the slightly overhanging main wall that faces the road. Start from a sit start on a big flake, then move up to small crimps. Hit the crimps right or it becomes a hell of a lot harder. The crux is after you make the first move left and put a foot on the starting hold and rocking up with your right hand to the next series of crimps. The top out is mildly slopey, but you can easily bring a foot up because the right slide of this boulder slopes down, and it is a good foot.

Location

On the smaller boulder just past the moat boulder, it's the right most line.

Pretty awkward, not straightforward; there are a lot of variations that can be done off of this thing. Fun though at the same time. May 11, 2011
