Boulder problem on lead (and I agree that the start seems harder than 5.10). Smear on nothing and crimp on close to nothing with very compression style climbing moves to get to the first bolt. Climb the overhanging pump-fest after clipping the second bolt. Finish on either of the three variations. Style points for not stick clipping, but STICK CLIP RECOMMENDED!

Three variations after the second bolt.

1) Stay left of the second bolt and left of the small arete for the hardest variation and then climb straight up to the anchor.

2) Use the small arete but continue climbing left of the arete for a slightly easier variation.

3) Climb right of the bolt onto the same finish as Between The Betwix.

All fun variations to do. If you are top roping get in your last days burn and try all three finishes in a row with either the Two Step (harder) start or the Between The Betwix (Easier) start.


Left of Electra (5.10c)


Two bolts. Careful as the first bolt is just high enough to make you uncomfortable.

Bolted Anchor.

The start to this feels more like 5.11 to me. Maybe I'm missing something but it felt like a V3 getting past the first bolt. It's considerably easier after that. Stick clip recommended. Mar 26, 2012
