This Thing is distinguished by the obvious, right-leaning, flake features which form the juggy but awkward and scrunchy start to the problem. Use these jugs to gain the slopey lip and gun for the finishing jug. Great fun.

Downclimbing options are several but all of them considerable in terms of danger. When I first did this problem I was alone, so I downclimbed the opposite face with some 5.8ish slab moves. If you are there with multiple pads, you may consider jumping off the finish. If downclimbing the opposite face, I would recommend having a friend bring the pads around.


This Thing is located on the face of the boulder which looks directly toward its parent cliff.


One backbreaker block threatens the starting moves. The landing gets cleaner the more comitted you get.

Anyone with information about this problem please let me know. To me, this problem fit in well with the Sheep's Nose's tendency to continually surprise me with amazing problems that I swear I've walked by dozens of times and not seen yet. This happened to me with This Thing last summer. This Thing was simply what jumped into my head and struck me as a funny temporary name. But it was well chalked and obviously established, so please let me know what it is and I will update. Feb 28, 2010
