Start on a big jug climb up to the arete, then use a few crimps to gain the lip. Reach back for a decent hold and try not to tear all of the skin off of your knees. Walk off left.


This is on the NE corner of the Kahuna Boulder, about 20 feet left of Beach Crack.


Pad, spotter, and long pants.


Seen this one forever and recently hopped on. Depending on flexibility, V5 seems fair if not a bit generous as the crux (for me) was in the mantle. A heel-hand match really makes the sequence quite reasonable and the mantle is not that bad. Good little problem. Apr 2, 2009

A much lower and obvious start squeezing opposing jugs adds quality moves and some difficulty. Lots of fun with an ugly topout. Oct 17, 2016

I agree with the last comment. Sit start low with left hand sidepulled and hand/heel matched on right hand makes this much more fun. Topped out by traversing to good crimps out left and throwing a solid heel. Wasn't too bad. Feb 7, 2017
