Description

So So Good...

Go around to the back side of the boulder (opposite of the big blank face) and look for the big thin block leaning against the boulder. to the right of this about 8 feet will be this problem. look for the low starting crimps and the high flat sloper pinch.

Start down low (a sitstart with pads on the bank) on the upper and lower staggered crimps. toss to the slopey lip, and then pop up to the flat sloper feature that can be sort of pinched. mantle up and slab climb to the top. So Fun!!

OH! sorry, I was running though all of the new MP additions I have to approve on a daily basis and when I saw your comment it just showed what problem you were talking about. It said: Last action Hero comment from Jay "I know its hard, wondering if it goes"... I though you were talking about the v6.

Anyway: yes, the line to the left is still a project. And its wicked hard from the sit start. The sit is the obvious way to go and the line is pure. Its crazy hard, and I’m sure some mutant could do it, but its too tough for me. Id like to go out there fresh to see how it feels though! So many projects! Oct 19, 2012

I am asking if the beautiful line to the Left of this "Last Action Hero" line has gone down? The one you said is "WAY harder than it looks." I know its hard, I checked it out and I am hoping someone stronger than I has crushed it! I don't see it listed here or in your other list. Oct 18, 2012

There is a beautiful line to the left of this (between the detached block and this problem) has that gone? Perfect low two handed crimp SDS with a jug mantle seperated by "tips slopers". Nov 7, 2011
