Description

Stand start on right side using large jug at about head height. Traverse left , then slightly up on a crimper rail. Many ending variations exist. The best (IMO) is to top out in the middle of the boulder using a really high right foot and move out right to a small sloping dish, and more slopes up to the left.

The Crimp Rail traverse starts on the jug and follows the rail till it dissapears, topping out just R of the large Pocket on the Pocket Problem. The alternate finish discussed is another great sloper problem that starts on two good edges in the rail and goes straight up through the dish. When I find my old pics I will add this. Mar 24, 2011
