Description

This climb is a short layback dihedral on the South American Boulders. At only 30' in length, it is short but is strenuous for the grade.

Its easy to set up a TR (a #4, #3, and #2 C4 work nicely) on this climb by scrambling up the boulders around the right hand side from the crack. Marvel at the 13b arete climb as you pass by it. That thing is beast! Jan 29, 2011

Beta: jamming your right foot straight makes the whole climb a lot less strenuous than a full layback.

A #4 is crucial and a #5 is twice as nice! Mar 19, 2014

I definitely would suggest a #5 unless you want to layback the whole thing and get it over with quickly. I severely dislike laybacks so I offwidth climbed it near the top - you can reach in and get fingers in the flake so it's pretty reasonable. Definitely worth stopping by on the way back from Buzzard's Roost. Dec 24, 2014

I decked on this, trying to get a piece in at about 12', friction not great and couldn't get a jam May 10, 2018
