Description Suggest change

Begin from a sit start shared with Champagne Left. Bump up and traverse right across perfect sloping rails to nice edges and then the top. Although the opening move out of the sds is slightly awkward, the quality of the rock is absolutely perfect and the movement across the face is outstanding.

NOTE: Although this problem and what I've called Champagne Left were never actually named by the early developers, the boulder was apparently coined the Champagne Block, and I've given these problems the namesake moniker until further notice. If Ben, Jason, David, Jeremy, Cam or Jamie read this, feel free to chime in.

Location Suggest change

This problem begins from a sit start in the center of the vertical downvalley-face of the boulder 20 yards uphill from the problem Seurat. Perfect salt-and-pepper granite, you can't miss it.

Protection Suggest change

1-2 Organic pads and maybe a spotter for the finish.
