Description

Start with a bomber hand jam and then use the rail inside the crack on the right side and then the horizontal crack on the left boulder to get through the middle wider section. If you jam your feet right, you should be able to access bomber hand jams again up high before exiting up on the left boulder.

Location

Climb the crack between Contrivance and Squirming Coil.

Protection

A pad.

I realized, after getting shut down on this problem twice, that V1 might be a sandbag. Really cool problem though, you should check it out. Mar 8, 2010

Has anyone else done this problem with the right boulder completely off (i.e. no jamming)? It's pretty fun to just climb the sloping arete using the cracks, hidden side-pulls and rails to a mantle topout. Probably still V1 or V2. Sep 28, 2010

Hand crack... yeah about that. Fist to offwidth size. Maybe a V1 offwidth, but I'm terrible anytime on crack, so can't really say grade wise. Aug 8, 2013

Topout was sweet with just good holds on a great landing. Made you work but so much fun. Crack seeps water after recent rain, so it might be wet. One/two hand jams and a perfect forearm jam. What more can you ask for? Sep 9, 2015
Does anyone know what the finger crack traverse to the left of Bearded Lady is? Apr 12, 2016

Britzn89, I believe the problem you are referring to is Contrivance. Apr 12, 2016
