Description

This balancy number is good line for finesse climbers that like to stand on their feet. There are some small crimps on this problem, but its never really necessary (or helpful) to bear down on them.

Begin standing a few feet left of the arete at a big sloper at around thigh-height. Start with your right hand on the high crimp side pull in the seam, and the left hand on the highly chalked sloper. Stand up onto the face and work the sidepulls and rounded knobs up to the obvious horizontal rail ~2 feet below the lip. Snatch the rail and top out easily.

Location

Around the arete to the left from “Little Something for the Effort”, on the Caddyshack Boulder.

Protection

One pad is probably enough.
