Start standing on two poor slimpers at head/chest height on the far right side of the wall. Feet should use small poor edges below. The crux is pulling off the ground and moving into the two better crimps just to the left and then a pinch that you can dyno to the lip from. It has a nice mantle finish. This is the beta I have always known and is true to Dan Russell's Colorado Springs Bouldering Website guide put together at the turn of the 21st century. This guide was the first I know of to document Ute Valley climbs and added quite a few "new" problems sent by the likes of Ryan Sayers, Than Hansen, and Jeff Russell.

Brian Shelton's guide (sold at Sport Climbing Center and Mountain Chalet $8) states the climb is a sit start beginning on lower holds. To my knowledge this is not true and is contrary to the Dan Russell guide, created shortly after Ryan's ascent, which was probably witnessed by Dan. The Shelton guide is a good one and a great resource available for Ute Valley bouldering.


Pad and spotter. A fairly poor landing with a small cliff band is directly behind. A spotter is a very good idea. If you blow the dyno, you will probably slam your head or back into the rock behind.
