Description

A much harder version of Oblivious to Danger that avoids the holds out left and tackles the dihedral. Start as for Oblivious to Danger and pull up into the undercling. Cross to a gaston in the dihedral, then figure out how best to get into the good high undercling. The lack of footholds complicates things. Stand up to the decent hold at the lip and finish the highball top arete/slab to the peak.

Location

At the top of the hill on the Big & Tall (Hemlock) Boulder to the right of Cream. Downclimb Cream or the corner/arete to the right of Maxim.

Protection

Multiple pads & spotters

Finished this off today after punting off the jug yesterday. Thanks to Troy, Miles and Gavin for the good beta yesterday.

Perhaps slightly contrived as 'Oblivious to Danger' is the natural line, but somehow it doesn't end up climbing contrived. Unique and cool movement combined with a bit of height makes for a high quality line.

As a side note, Brett Meyers and others have confirmed that this line was done a while ago by them. Still, nice job by Ethan to bring it back into the light a few years ago. Oct 24, 2016

A clip of Ethan sending Guppies after we cleaned and inspected the top section. Guppies and Oblivious are nice lines and worth a look if you don't mind the highball. The top section is easier climbing but be careful up there since there still is a bit of lichen and possibly some breakable holds.
