Description

Originally named "Monkey Pinch" in the Las Vegas Bouldering guidebook, this problem is now listed as "Hyperglide" in Southern Nevada Bouldering II.

Make your way up to the big undercling starting as low as you deem respectable. Once established under the roof, grab the right hand pinch/sidepull and use one of several left hand crimp options. Crank through the sidepull to a left-hand crimp that may seem miles away. A tall but easy topout follows.

Protection

Couple of pads will protect the crux but don't pitch from the top.

pretty sure this route is called hyperglide and it's in the new book as v4/5, but still an awesome line May 30, 2011

AKA Hyperglide. Amazing problem, one hard move then jugs up high. Loved it. Dec 21, 2017

Solid v5 for shorties. This took me more attempts than monkey bar direct.
