DescriptionThis U-Mound classic is on par with The Manatee (in my opinion) but strangely, it sees far less traffic. Perhaps it's the really bad landing or hard to reach start? Either way, this is a must do. While it is definitely easier and not quite as tall as the The Manatee, it requires a different level of commitment and risk.
Can also be linked via a low start on the arete which makes it a formidable hard line for those who have U-Mound dialed.
