Description

Stand start very high up (if you're shorter you will need to stack pads)on a large, diagonal rail for a right hand, and a lower small crimp for a left (since Aaron broke the good jug to start on).

establish feet and fire out left to a good gaston. Get established on a line of crimps and do a big dynamic move to an awesome jug bar. Top out through some more jugs.

I should add that a sit start is probably possible... It would add about 5-6 moves of painful painful V10 crimping. Go for it!

Location

The very thin crack line about 5 feet left of Fulgora.

It broke this summer, but the small feet around it work still yet. Its tough no matter what feet are used! Ive heard every grade from V4-V8 on FSM. So hard to grade. Oct 14, 2012

I think the high starting foot broke recently? Felt a little harder today. So sharp, but so good!! Oct 14, 2012

I broke the good hold above the triangle crimp. Now start with a right hand on a very high, big but not great sidepull/pinch hold, and a left hand on a small hold below. The problem is still awesome and highly recommended.

I would call it an easy 8 now? I did the low start off tiny holds into the above mentioned right hand, but didnt link it to the finish... it would go at v9 this way I would guess, but it wouldnt be as fun. I may do it next trip anyway. And also, I found a link up from the sit start that looks possible, but only for strong double digit (v12 or more) climbers... small holds, hard moves, steep face.

some one should verify the rating. Took me longer than fulgora, but I went real smooth today...maybe it was just the temps.... Oct 23, 2010
