Description

The best problem on the boulder and one of the best in the woods. Start matched on a good sharp jug above head height. Get a super high right foot and bump up on crimps to get a good crescent crimp sidepull with your left. Next figure out the tricky crux sequence which involves getting a high foot on the starting hold or going to a sidepull below the lip. Very classic.

The starting hold on this problem has recently broken off. Doesn't really seem to affect the grade though. Apr 26, 2015
