The uniquness of the rock makes this problem worth doing. It does not seem as if your feet are going to stick to the crystal surfaces.

Start on some crimps or side pulls. There is a good left gaston that you can use or not. Get your self up to the obvious good hold in the middle of the face with your right hand. Reach up to a slopping pinch with your left and either punch again or cross for a good block at the top of the wall. Committing but relatively easy.


The center of the white crystal face from a standing start.


Pad and spotter, while not particularly tall, there is a shelf tha sticks out about 2 feet right in the middle of your landing area. So if you pitch you will want to push off just a little to make sure you clear it.

Jeremy, I thought you and Kulikowski only named problems after beer. Back in the day I never bouldered at Fat City with anybody except for Whitbeck and even then we were just scratching around for new stuff higher up.

Valentina sounds nice to me--crystal face center describes more than half the foothills problems.

Got me. I don't know the names of any of those problems nor am I sure who developed the area originally. Jun 16, 2011
