DescriptionOne of the stand outs of the U-Mound area.
Start matched on the left facing edge/jug at shoulder level. Pull up to a sloper with a thumb catch up and right. From here there are at least 3 ways to do the next bit all of which are about the same grade depending on what you are best at. You can back step either way and reach up to either of the side by side edges with one hand or the other or you can heal hook by your left hand and rock up to the edges. Next make a difficult pull to the knob edge out right then up to another small edge and finally a bigger one. The holds for the top out are pretty small so if you don't scope it out first there could be some groveling involved...there maybe groveling anyway.
