Description

Start with both hands in an undercling about 5 ft up. From there either move right to a crimp, or left to a worse crimp. Move upward, and get your right hand into a slight depression over the lip that's not near as good as you would like. Move upward and leftward to top out on more crimps with very small feet.

The holds on top are not completely obvious, but they are there. This seemed to be easier for taller people, but still very doable for shorter people. I like crimps with good technical movement, and this problem has lots of this.

Location

This problem is located on the east face of Butt Trumpets Boulder. Start with both hands in the obvious undercling about 5 ft up, then head up and slightly left.

Protection

Good, flat landing.

Great flow and holds are good. Don't fear the crimps, just find good feet and move over and up. May 31, 2017
