Description

This mega-classic top-rope or gear lead (see here) is occasionally bouldered, being a proud tick for the local boulderer. Sustained crimping and technical tension moves lead up through a pod and into some delicate and insecure moves at the top. NOW you're a hard-man. Or woman.

Location

At the left side of the Sizzlefoot face. This thin crack/face climb is directly opposite a small culvert under the walkway. The culvert points at the climb.

Protection

3-4 pads, a couple feet of snow helps cover the pointed rock at the base.

First ascent most likely Coleman Miller, in the '75-'76 timeframe. Originally called Sisyphus. Name morphed because we were too stupid to understand Greek tragedy, etc. Mar 11, 2014
