Start at the large hole on the left of the cave. Move up and out towards the lip of the cave. Using core strength stay on and reach down and right to the fang.

Grab the fang and squirm up it to reach better holds and the top.

Pads and spotters to protect a potential bad landing on the boulder below.

A super physical and strong climb with lots of gymnastic variations- want a challenge? -avoid the wall, etc.... Its seriously the most fun you'll ever have on a 4. I've personally introduced this problem to half a dozen different people, none of them send it the same way, but they all walk away with the same comment: This boulder/problem is a blast to play on!

  • also, its nice and lowball so if pads are an issue, stop by here :)

Lots of fun! Plenty of varying beta ranging from burly to graceful. Bonus points if you can top out without humping the fang.

Watch your head! The fang will bite!!! Nov 24, 2012
