Description

This is a run-and-jump problem which goes for a good edge above a smooth scooped section of rock; once the jug is gained it's easy to the top. Can also be done with a big cheatstone or pad stack (being tall helps).

Location

Left of center on the north face and just left of the Fry Problem.

haha wonder how quick I'd get booted out of the park trying the correct start ^. rad. Oct 18, 2016
I did the FA of this problem in the mid 80s
I was working on the guide at the time, and drawing topos of the area.

and I look at that giant jug way up there, and think, if I don't do this now
it will get done the day after the book comes out, and not by me.

I'm alone of course and there is no one around to see what I'm about to do

I stack some dead Joshua trees into a huge pile,
my first couple tries would just collapse the pile of dead crap.

Finally I got the stack just right to be able grab the jug with a little leap.

After the ascent, I redistributed the Joshua trees back into the desert to erase any evidence of foul play. Feb 28, 2016
