Description

Sit start with your right hand on a right-facing sidepull, left hand on a flat edge. Go with your left up to the left to a sloper and and bump a few inches higher to a good slanted edge. Head straight up to a hard to snag jug and an easy topout.

I am sufficiently confused as to the real name of this problem, I am pretty sure it is called Prow Problem, or maybe something else. Either way it is a pretty fun problem and deserves an entry.

Location

This is the Northeast bulging arete, left of Purity Control/Pocket Problem.

Protection

One pad.

Did this one today. Very nice, fun problem. I don't boulder enough to know grades, but it felt hard but doable and very enjoyable.

BETA ALERT

Brandon: Once you've got your left hand on the slanted edge, heel hook the side-pull start hold with your right foot. This should let you get your right hand up to the good slanted crimper. Hope that helps. May 16, 2012

So, for the sit down start after you get your left hand up to the sloper and then bump it up to the slanted ledge and try to figure out the bad feet, are you just throwing to the giant slanted crimp with your right hand? I come off on this move every time because of the way the hold is facing. Is this the right beta? Apr 28, 2012

This is a fun problem, and a bit harder than its neighbor Epiphany. The sds is definitely a must do. Power, technique, balance and a bit of growl will get you up this one. Dec 3, 2009

Guide give sit start a V6 and stand start a V3... The sds is one of the better problems on this block. Apr 26, 2009
