Start matched on the seam down and right. Traverse left and up, on some bad holds and even worse feet, until you get to the final dyno to reach to the lip. For me personally this is the hardest problem I have ever done, but consensus puts it a little lower to get only 11 points.

This problem has a stand start somewhere in the V8-9 range.

I was told this problem was V7 and after 5 days of trying it and still not having done all the moves I know I had been had. So the name - no surprise - comes from Seven and Eleven combined.


It's in the gully just left of the Nomad's Cave. If you hike up the hill you can't miss it.

Checked this bad boy out the other day and it's freak-en hard!!!! Maybe I am missing something major on this problem but it's V11 for sure!! I heard this one was tough for the rating but damn!! If "The Animal" is V10 than this thing is V12-something. Cool problem... going back soon to work on the moves some more and see if I can't figure this little sweetheart out. Others should definitely give this problem a look because it's really good. Aug 14, 2009

Good job on the direct start, I sent the standing problem in the late 1980s, and tried a sit start but was unsuccessful in its link. The stand up is a powerful move which spits most folks off, if they can even mount the thing. Although a short problem it feels kind off highball. see Bouldering Colorado. Jun 11, 2009
