Description

Start as for Leap Frog and climb up to good hold above crack. Instead of making the big dyno for Leap Frog, move left through small holds to a high scary topout.

Thanks, just making sure. From the pictures here it seems as if that the absurdly small crack I saw is not a handhold. 4 days ago
It stays on the wall right of the inside corner break and has its own unique top out not shared by any other problems. Its all there, one would expect the hand holds on v11 to be small, with feet that big. 4 days ago

Does it top out above The Quiet Buddhist? From all I can see there's the very tiny crack that I referenced and then two other sharp holds up and about three feet to the left. Is that it or do I need to break out a magnifying glass to find the holds? 4 days ago
Its also worth noting on this that the FA was done as a standup start in the middle of the traverse. Adding one of the many sit start options would add to the pump. 5 days ago

Doesn't appear to have broken. It was always very hard on very small holds. That tiny little crack hold is definitely part of the route. 5 days ago

Does anyone know if holds on this problem broke off? I was looking for the holds today and I literally couldn't find anything except for a tiny little crack that you might be able to fit two fingers with an eighth of a pad on... seems pretty improbable at the moment. 5 days ago
