Description

A fantastic jump problem:

Look for the skinny little tree that grows four feet back from the left side of the enthralling geometric arête feature that disrupts the shear face on the right end of the Thews Boulder.

Place your right hand on the "Jigsaw" hold (that also serves as a starting marker for "Thews"(v6)).

Place a smear left foot and blast off and up to the large right facing notch on the overhead roof lip. Stick this impressive looking move, and then engage the crux top out sequence that will keep your ego in check. Top out above the start hold crimp.

Location

On the left side of the middle bulge-arete on the front face of the Thews Boulder

Thanks man, it felt pretty hard to me as far as the top out goes. I really can’t see it going at less than a v6... it feels harder than Thews, which I did once again just before doing Breaking Point. Try it and let me know your opinion. Sticking the first move feels awesome! Nov 15, 2010
