Description Suggest change

Start right of Gerbil in a Chute, under the small, chossy roof, with hands on two crimpy edges shoulder width apart and each about 3 feet off the dirt. If you are tall, you can sit. Otherwise, it's a crouching start.

Pull on and either huck to an obvious jug diagonally up and right, or use a sloping crimp to shorten the desperate stab.

This is really a one-move wonder that can feel hard for 7 on some days and way easy for 6 on others.

Using generous holds, top out the backside slab of the Punani Block, being mindful of loose and fragile rock. A broken hold from here would spit you onto the rocky slab behind the problem.

Note: I gave this problem a name simply for the sake of future identification/discussion. This line has been climbed many times over the years at different stages of its erosion. The edges have seemed to round-off enough now that it may finally be stable.

Protection Suggest change

A couple of pads or one big pad would be helpful, since spotting on dynamic lowballs never works well.
