There is no White Knight is a sit start from a positive crimp rail. After two really hard crimp moves, you move to the triangle ledge and up the fun topout. This is a very fun dihedral, despite being a short problem. The topout features engaging moves on comfy holds.


Straight up the dihedral on the west side of the Quandary Boulder. Pretty obvious...


Two pads ought to be plenty. The landing is uncharacteristically flat for a talus field.
For those that haven't seen it yet this is an extremely aesthetic line and I'm excited to get back up there with a pad or two to try it! Paul, did you start matched on the right wall or with one hand on the left and one on the right?

There's also 3-4 other nearby boulders that look like they might have some nice problems on them. Dec 8, 2012

Hey Steve,

I started matched on the right wall. The crux of this problem is definitely the first two moves, but it's not too bad when you get the body positioning and lock off right. Bring your edging shoes! Dec 8, 2012
Did this one today. Thought it was a great problem! Apr 21, 2013

Awesome problem! The holds feel great in cold conditions. Nov 18, 2013

If you start with your left hand on a sidepull on the left wall, it is a bit harder and climbs very differently. Known as the "Dark Knight variation" Nov 20, 2013

Doesn't this boulder problem qualify as a 4 star problem? Nice setting, an obvious start hold, interesting moves, a topout, and a relatively flat landing. All the stars. Nicely done, Paul. Sep 18, 2014
