DescriptionDefinitely one of the hardest problems at U-Mound (in my opinion a grade harder than Hito, especially now since it broke)
Probably more in the neighborhood of hard V12 now. Stand start somewhere in the V8-V9 realm.
An alternate right variation takes the same start and angles across the face to finish on the Samet Problem. (Slightly easier than the original variation in its present state.)
LocationOn the northwest side of the Africa boulder, straight up the middle of the steep, green face. Start low with two glued crimps just above the hueco. Make the desperate moves thought the lower section via bad crimps and what used to be a tiny nipple (now broken) to a low percentage stab to a weird right-handed hold. (Still possible but with alternate beta) Continue straight up to top out.
An ultimate U-Mound testpiece featuring ultra technique and very finger intensive movement.
