Description

Formerly the "Crack of Doom" project. Begin with your left hand in the crack and right hand on a jug sidepull. Make an easy move before diving into five moves of powerful yet technical climbing. A committing layback move guards the lip. Proud!

Location

This boulder sits about 40ft to the north of the Massive Vertigo boulder. It faces downhill and it's pretty obvious when you see it.

Protection

3.5 pads make this safe feeling. Definitely consider covering the rock on the right with a half.

This is a stellar problem. Definitely a true classic. Get on it. Trad climbers may fair well on this one. Apr 24, 2014

Cool line. Need some good temps to make that pinch feel better and I think it goes. Jul 27, 2011
It looked to me that this was going to finish left over the "pit of doom", is that where you guys are going?

Maybe it would take some gear in the crack ;) Jun 21, 2011

Travis Melin almost did this the other day. I think if we had maybe 4 more pads to protect the drop he would have. I'm glad he didn't really go for it though, it could have been ugly. Jun 20, 2011

I think it is 7+ for sure. V4ish into a stopper crux finger lock and match. Jun 17, 2011

Nic. You should send it. It may just need someone who knows there way around the cracks... Jun 17, 2011

Nic, if it had any face holds it wouldn't be so hard. This thing is all body tension, and terrible finger locks. Jun 17, 2011

We cleaned this up today, but no sends. It's a very hard line. IMO one of the best crack problems at the lake. Jun 16, 2011
