Description

At first, I wasn't impressed, but this problem grew on me. It has some tiny, bad holds, a crux deadpoint, and beat the hell out of my fingers. Sit start the rear arete with some decent edges, pull up to a terrible sloper on the arete, then work your feet around and fight a savage barndoor as you deadpoint up to a very thin three-finger crimp. Slap up to a good sidepull and finish up with a few easy moves to the top.

Location

In the Warmup area, this is on the same boulder as Pop on Top and Scarred for Life. Walk around back, away from the trail and find two low edges to start just left of the actual blunt arete. Downclimb by the tree.

This problem is short and sharp but it's actually quite fun!

The crux is definitely sticking the small crimp. Not too bad of a barn door if you get the feet right.

Since Blair is full of v8's, this one shouldn't be too high on the list, but it's worth doing once you've ticked off most of the rest. Oct 13, 2012
I wanted to do this climb for awhile and finally got on it and managed to send it pretty quick, it is really sharp but has some cool moves! footage at 3:30
