Description

I'm surprised this route hasn't been posted already. Though not as popular as other highballs such as The Whip, this route offers good climbing on a striking crack. The commitment level is comparable to The Whip and over a worse landing. Start on a jug at waist height and stand tall to establish the crack. Cool moves lead to a committing smear to reach a great fingerlock. Once you establish the lock, take a breath and reach the lip.

Location

on the "Big and Tall" boulder. The obvious HB crack right of the usual downclimb.

Protection

a pad, a spotter, and a cool head

pretty bad sloping landing - an ankle could definitely snap if you peeled near the top Sep 20, 2012

Both this and A Brain Supreme are phenomenal, the movement on both in my opinion is a bit better than CREAM, which I always find a little bit awkward. Jun 11, 2016

You can follow the smaller right crack to finish on Brain Supreme. The crack is very friendly, there are good feet, and the landing gets flatter as you move right. Jul 5, 2016
