DescriptionStart standing, matched on the shelf about eight feet or so left of 'Spragueasorus'. The crux comes in the first couple of moves, first with a high step/heel onto the shelf and then using a tiny crimp (and possibly a smaller one below first) to set up for a committing move to a good hold. This move is the hardest physically and is made somewhat harder by the prospect of falling backwards onto the sloping boulder below. From there, the climbing ease somewhat in difficulty, but the last move to the upper lip is a committing one high off the deck over a very bad landing. Failing to latch the lip would not be good...
If you can get past all of that, and summon enough courage, this climb is defintely worth doing. It would be one of the best at the Blackjacks if not for the poor landing.
