Description

This beast of a boulder problem packs the punch of a route - close to 40 feet, but due to all the climbing under the roof and the slope of the ground your feet will only tickle the 20 foot-mark near the top. Before you jump on the upper section, be sure to realize the seriousness of the down-climb, which is down the northeast face/arete.

Start way down on the left side of the roof in the huecos. Move out the roof sightly right using fins and huecos to a large hueco with a jug on the right side, just before the lip of the roof. Bust out right into the crux using sharp crimps and good footwork to the big move up to the large sidepull/jug. Follow the path of jugs and big moves up and right all the way to the top.

Downclimb the northeast face. (be careful!)

Beware the large holds towards the end of this problem. Even though the climbing is 'easy' you definitely have to make large moves from the two biggest and they seem crispy/fractured. Same goes for the downclimb. Feb 18, 2013

There are some big committing moves up high on this thing! A contender for one of the best V6's in Bishop. Full value from start to finish. Awesome moves, awesome holds, and an all around awesome highball. Feb 20, 2018

One of the best! Work through the technical juggy hueco traverse, rest up, then power on through easier climbing until the mantle. An adventure of a boulder problem.
Be mindful that the downclimb isnt the easiest, a pad stack to drop onto is nice to have. Nov 15, 2018
