Description

This route traverses right to left along the West face of the Penny Boulder. Sit start on the far right side arete. Traverse left staying as low as possible on crimps and scrunchy feet until you reach the start holds of the Penny Pincher. Finish on the Penny Pincher. For me, the crux was shifting onto the start holds of Penny Pincher. This took some unexpected, awkward footwork.

I'm curious how other people would rate this. I could see it going harder than I've rated it but not easier than V6.

Location

It is on the West face of the Penny Boulder.

Protection

A pad is nice but not necessary if you don't mind sitting down in the dirt.

This problem is V8...for tall lanky dudes like myself. Oct 30, 2009

Jordan, I agree that this is probably a V8, especially for tall people. When I was posting this, I was barely climbing that hard and nervous to give it a hard rating for fear of being wrong. Aug 29, 2015
