Description

A high quality problem, especially given how short it is. Standing start with your left hand on a sloper and your right hand in the slot, a strong pull off the ground leads to a tough body-tension move before an easier top out. Kicking off of the ground to get started reduces the grade to C0.

Location

From the Martini Madness boulder, follow the path off to the left. This problem is on an inconspicuous boulder in the shade.

Just tried this problem tonight and got it 2nd try! Was way more fun that I thought it would be when I walked up to it. It doesn't have much chalk markings on it(kinda nice to see!), but the start holds were obvious. Not sure about the grade, seemed to fit by style, but V4 to v5- seems about right. Awesome Climb!

A little history: this was one of the first 'modern' problems at the Mouth (meaning stuff not in the mouth or at Meilee that wasn't super obvious). I'd been climbing at the Swimming Hole and armed with how those guys (Anderson, Johnson) read boulders figured we could really change the SB landscape for bouldering. I was wandering around the Mouth checking stuff out and found this on a summer afternoon where it was too hot to stick very well. I made a deal with myself that I wouldn't leave until I got it even if I had to stay there for days. I got it, finally, when it was so dark I was glad I'd thoroughly chalked every hold. This was. basically, the start of what would become to be known as Martini Summer. Aug 21, 2012
