Climb straight up the deepest part of the main overhang. All the holds on the start are facing the wrong way. Pinch left, jump up, and grab the downward-facing flake. Undercling and finish on football pinches. A sit start of this problem would be harder and probably has not been done.


A pad.

One time when I was grovelling on the undercling of the downward-facing flake, a small bat flew out of the crack in the back. I nearly didn't fall off. Apr 4, 2009

I did a static start to this problem tonight. It was V3-ish. The sit start is the next project. Jun 11, 2009

Oh, oh, ohhhhhhhh, I could not for the life of me figure out how to start this one, a jump up to the underling would make a lot more sense. That sit start would be sweet but would most definitely be super difficult. May 6, 2016
