Kung Fu Grip

V5, Boulder, 15 ft,  Avg: 3.5 from 32 votes
FA: unknown
N Carolina > Rumbling Bald > Rumbling Bald B… > W Side Boulders > Cave Boulder

Description

Classic! Start on a large sloping pinch to the right of the warm up problems on the shady side of the boulder. This problem stays pretty crisp even on hotter days at Rumbling Bald. Move up and match the square block, them move off the block to the crimp (crux). Make a big move left and top out on the ramp. This problem is very heel hook intensive.

Location

Obvious chalked up sloping pinch which marks the start of the problem, shady side of boulder.

Protection

Good landing, back splat!

[Hide Comment] Love it! (and I think If this problem had a little more v5 in it, it could go at v7). Dec 12, 2010
