This is a sit start variation for "Quartz Caterpillar", which increases the difficulty. Start on the lowest set of crimps under the "caterpillar." Pop a right hand to the breadloaf rail, then move left hand into the start holds of Quartz Caterpillar.


On the vertical part of the boulder to the right of the overhanging section. There is a vertical strip of quartz that kind of looks like a caterpillar that can identify the problem. Start with a left hand on the sharp flake below the "caterpillar", and a right hand pinching the breadloaf-type rail.
