Description

Two distinct and difficult cruxes that will make wish you did more bouldering. Big rest before the last crux takes a star away but I am glad it was there.

Location

East face of Branching out crag. Drop down the right side of the tower staying close to the wall. When you reach the low angle ramp leading up to the saddle between Mojo and Braching Out push through the bushes and drop farther down the cliff. Continue staying close to the wall. The bulgy skyline is Prowler. Start is the same as Tree Top Flyer but follows the left hand bolt line.

Beta related question regarding crux #1:

From the underclings to the right hand gaston crimp on the corner of the ramp... left hand on the left angling sloper crimps...this is what I think you do, but from there do you simply throw to the top of the corner where the slot is? It looks to be about a 4 ft dyno... Couldn't figure out whether to go with right or left hand.

I also found a small micro dish on the wall above the ramp, essentially a right fingertip sidepull that maybe allows you to get your body position higher, but this move seems extremely off-balance and very desperate... Nov 4, 2012

No dyno that I recall Dah but I forget a lot pretty fast. I remember a really thin crimp though. Nov 4, 2012
