Description

Must do for anyone in the Pollen Grains. The crux is right off the ground with very poor feet. Once you are high enough to use the flake with your feet it is smooth sailing to the very last move, which is the mental crux. A creaky flake (it is solid, trust it) for your left and a grainy side-pull for your right set you up for the grab for the lip. Just amazing!

Protection

Spotters and as many pads as you can muster. The fall is straight down but it would smart to come down from the top.

The reach to the jug up top is so satisfying. . . Mar 19, 2011

Great line! I thought the middle (incut sidepull) was harder than the the bottom. Wonderful experience topping it out. Not PG13.

Great introduction to bishop highballing! Crux for me was definitely in the middle, gaining the last right facing side pull before the jug. A fall from there could be ugly. Dec 22, 2016
