Description

Note: The hold that was broken wasnt a key hold for this line and it still climbs the same. Good to go!

A proud J-Webb FA on the 12th of August 2012:

In between the "That's My Money" arĂȘte problem and "Parlier's Problem". Start VERY deep under the overhang on blocky jug incuts with feet far under. Move out through crimps to better holds to the flat lip. Top out and profess that you're an AVP champion.

--Note: The pedestal/wall/block anywhere under the boulder is considered off for this boulder problem. There are "good" feet on the roof that make moving out possible. Sorry for any confusion. Same goes for "Parlier's Problem".

Location

On the rear face (first face you will come to as you walk into area from the road via climbers trail) on the left portion of the overhanging face. Look for two obvious jug holds under the steepness to the left portion of the overhang (the first face you come to as you walk up the trail).

John,

Sorry man, the guidebook topo for this face of the AVP boulder has an "extra" line on it. It was an oversight from trying to squeeze "Sigourney Weaver" onto the page. The line for lifestyles is a little off from where the problem actually climbs, and doest show where the problem starts. The start holds are pretty deep under the roof below the first three finger, slopey-ish pocket. There are a few good videos of it online. Mar 16, 2015
Looks like there is a rock scar where I thought the start hold would be based on the photo in the guide book. Did the start hold break or does it just start further right? Mar 15, 2015

I personally consider this to be in the top 5 best lines at GHSP. You have to try this one out for sure. Aug 21, 2012
