Description

Located center right of the vertical north face of the Wounded Knee boulder. Starts on the lowest of the obvious chalked horizontal crimps. Pull up through crimps, with a big deadpoint halfway up, then jugs to the top. I think it's called wounded knee because the dark blob that's the obvious starting foothold tends to spit feet off, resulting in wounded knees.

Problem P2 from the Mayer & Moret online guide, "Follow the line of positive edges on the right. A classic crimpfest; probably V3-. Perhaps the best boulder problem at U-Mound. From the lower crimps, try dyno-ing directly for the top jug -- a great V4 dyno problem."

Location

See area description and photos. This is the lowest and farthest north of the boulders in the "Back Side Upper Mound/ Wounded Knee" sector.

Protection

Pad/ spotter. This problem has a perfect flat landing.
