Description

Nice compression moves with a potentially bad landing and a difficult top out, oh yeah and steep for the U-mound.

Start from a sit with a low right side pull and an OK left edge. Heal hook right and pull up to a higher sidepull then stab at a higher edge with the left, the sooner you get to the good left hold the better. Another heel hook and reach high and right into the OW for an edge. Then start trying to find holds on the slab and still see your feet.

This is problem I 0.5 from Mayer & Moret overview map. From their online guide, "Just left of the chimney is a very cool problem with a crack for the left hand and slippery sidepull rail for the right. Not the best landing, but Andy survived a fall from the top (missing the    crash-pad of course).  :) V5"  

Location

The west end of the corridor on the north side.

Protection

Pads and spotter. Pad the platform and have your spotter behind it to keep you from missing the platform. Wear a shirt, if you slip off the top out it could be ugly, I've seen it happen, looked like the guy lost a fight with a cat.
