Description

A very exciting steep problem. Start on the right side of the cave from the ground, jump to a jug and start squeezing.

Location

The prow left of Blunder

Protection

The landing is great thanks to the FA, but it's steep up high

It's a tall beast, but it's also the best problem I've done so far in LCC. Nothing compares. Mar 11, 2011

The moves on this aren't especially difficult (probably V5-6), but you earn the extra points for the height. The top out isn't too hard, but it sure isn't a gimme. Classic highball. Oct 29, 2014

I took a hard fall from the top on this one! Missed the pads and spotter but ending up rolling in a thorn bush. You might want 3-4 pads on this one. Just saying. That being said, amazing problem. Aug 5, 2015

The starting jug that you jump to is out on the prow. There's a low start variation that traverses in from the far left on the rail. Sep 18, 2017
