Soot Patrol

V7, Boulder, 12 ft (4 m),  Avg: 2.8 from 20 votes
FA: unknown
California > Central Coast > Santa Barbara > Santa Barbara… > Brickyard > Soot Patrol Boulder

Description

A fun jug haul until you reach the lip, most folks do the V3 version that just reaches the lip and drops off. Sit-start on jugs and move through a couple of good slopers and finger pockets to reach the lip. For the full problem, grovel your way over the lip on slopers.

Location

In the same cave as Watch the Dog about ten feet to the right.

Protection

Pad and a spotter to check you off the rock below.

[Hide Comment] Don't drop off the lip! Fight your way over! Yeaaah, c'mon! Dec 2, 2012
[Hide Comment] I had several days of attempts falling from the top via a right high hamstring heel hook getting over the bulge. Gut buster and worthy! Apr 11, 2013

Sit to the lip is V3.
Sit to pulling over the lip is V7 from my understanding. Apr 20, 2021

[Hide Comment] I find this one to be quite fun and underrated. Top moves are a bit committing and spooky, but would clean up well with a bit more traffic. Be wary of PO in the landing area! instagram.com/reel/Cdqi4oej… Apr 24, 2023
