Start with sloping crimps, bust a move up and left to the topout.

This problem is properly a variation of Bates Eliminate. We called it Bates Eliminate Left (Bates Eliminate was the specific topout) back in the day. When I first did it, the rating was V3, but the start holds were considerably bigger back then.


Just left of the Magoo problems, left of the tree and the left side of the boulder. Did I mention it's on the left?


Pad, or not, you'll be fine

This is properly called Bates Eliminate.

The Bates Problem starts with the left hand on the arete, and goes at around V0/V0+. Apr 27, 2016
