Start Sitting, go straight up from the tiny pocket and pinch on Barbed Wire to a painful knee scum crux and a jagged crimper.

[Hide Comment] This is basically the stand start , or halfway point start for barbed wire, yes? Saying 'go straight up' in the description is super confusing. consider changing? Also 'just left of barbed wire start' is super misleading because there is like 8 ft of rock between the two starting points. Jun 23, 2020

[Hide Comment] Not sure what you are confused about. This problem is a butt on pad sit start that climbs up onto the slab in a mostly straight line from the sit above the pinch and small pocket. It has nothing to do with Barbed Wire, which(although excellent) is essentially a contrived traverse through the lower portion of this problem, and others. Jun 23, 2020
