DescriptionOne of the taller lines at U-mound, though this would still barely qualify as a highball in many areas. Technical and insecure climbing to go along with a strong reputation still make this a desired tick.
There used to be an unstable plate about the size of a kitchen table that rocked back and forth in the landing area that has since migrated down the hill and settled.
Work up into the big underclings then ooze your way out to where you can grab the good hold over the lip with your left. Match briefly and reach up to a right crimp and match, now hoist your foot up over the lip onto the previous hold and some how reach out left to a hard to see sidepull. Work your way up crimpy side pulls until you can reach some rounded holds on top and start paddling.
