Description

Sit start left hand in a pocket and right hand rail. Match the rail and deadpoint to a good ledge. Match on the edge and go out right to a sketchy little pinch, step up and slap textured rock to start the top-out battle.

Location

From the North Matthew-Winters parking, go to the obvious sandstone outcroppings. The first one you come to has some kind of fun V0 warmups. Keep going North for about 300 feet to find this line. It is right of a big ledge (picture should help).

Protection

A couple of pads and a spotter are a bonus.

I tried this problem yesterday. The left-hand crimp below and to the left of where dude's left hand is in the picture broke somewhat and sent me flying. Its still a good hold though. I chickened out of the topout because I was there by myself. Seems like a sweet problem. There is potential for another cool problem or two just to the right of this, but you would need multiple pads and a good spotter. Mar 18, 2011
