Description

As the name implies, the crux of this one is topping out. Start on the ugly glue-reinforced flake at head height and make a hard move or two to get established on the sloping lip of the boulder. Throw your heel up over your head into an insecure dish and begin the hard process of rocking over. There are some small edges and divots high up on the slab that will eventually help to you get your weight onto your heel and stand up, if you make it there!

Location

To the right of Child of the Storm on the Swirly boulder. Start on the unusual flake with the obvious line of glue behind it.

Protection

Pads and a spot. The landing isn't perfect and you can get ejected from this problem with a great deal of momentum if your heel goes.

I managed a rare ascent of this gem today. Really fun climb believe it or not. Specially compared to other mantle problems like Boulder X, Monkey Press, Magnificent Bastard. I think of it as a challenge just waiting to be conquered. You know its possible. You just have to get creative and figure out what works for you. Great one to try with your friends. youtube.com/watch?v=TqofqeX… Nov 22, 2016
