Description

Good hold. Easy move. Good hold. Big move. Bad hold. Even bigger move. Good hold. Topout. Woohoo. A crimpy, powerful problem that starts and ends as for Freezing Point Depression without sharing a single move. Sit start with the nice flake in the middle of the face and pull up to a left hand crimp in the horizontal. Make a big move up and right to a crimp, before fixing your feet and pulling straight up to the lip.

To make the last move slightly easier, use a sketchy sidepull for your left hand and then pull up to the lip.

Location

On the Forgotten Boulder, this problem is found on the back right side when approaching from the trail and shares a common start with Rio's Sharp Problem. Downclimb an easy face towards the trail.
