Description

Start on the same jug as for "Tilt-a-whirl." Make a cool (RH) cross to a perfect flat crimp. Bring (LH) through to a small odd crimp out left. Get set up and fire (LH) up to some of the worst slopers around. Match up on the sloping dish and make a few more difficult moves to easier but (HB) climbing above.

Walk off right down a steep gully.

Great hard climbing on perfect rock. And you can't beat the setting of this problem. It's a new area classic!! Go do it!!!!

Location

The approach is the same as for "The Pass," and the problem is on the same wall as "Tilt-a-whirl," which is located at the very top crest of "The Pass." A little hard to find but worth the effort!! A+ stone with great moves!!

Protection

Spotter and several pads.
