A real high-ball! Stand start in the angleing crack then move left to good edges at about 7ft up. Dynamic, or long moves leads to very cruxy slopers right at the top. The second crux right at the end makes it very very real problem.


On the Brain Boulder in the project area. Just right of unknown9. Climb straight up.

we climbed it to within 4 inches of the top multiple times one day, but couldnt commit to the very last off balance move soo high we ended up down climbing and dropping. This was in the massive humidity of august, and it felt maybe 6ish to me then, probably very different grade in good temps. Jan 20, 2013

Did you give this a grade? Mothena and I thought this was a project. Great line! Based on other stuff in the area I felt like this was in the V8 range, as a guess. Jan 20, 2013
I put this up in 2000. Hard SDS, to a gaston/back hand crimp in the crack leads to SLOPEY even harder sketchier top out. I called it Kung Foo Hand. Jan 18, 2013
