Despite the name, this is a very enjoyable problem and would make a great warm-up for anyone trying to send some of the harder problems in the Closet. Climb the face using the arete with your right hand. It looks like a SDS has been done which would make the problem quite a bit harder.


The obvious face to your right when facing the Bad Genes Boulder.


Spot your landing off to the left as there are some ankle twisting rocks

Via the guide book for this problem says it is a sit start (at the low jug same as desperado) and head right to the arete. I thought it was noticeably harder than Desperado v1, fun climbing none the less! Oct 5, 2014

The SDS of this boulder does not add a grade, just a move, and possibly some uncomfort.

With both hands, you can just follow that little crimp rail all the way up to the top Oct 24, 2011
