Description

Start right hand on a sloper on the lip with a chip out of it and left hand on a nice side pull in the overhanging face and climb the boulder. Cool slopers and some good tenuous moves. This is a stand to the Corner Project.

Location

Next to Moj. The starting right hand is the heel most use on that problem. The easiest way I've found up there is from Pete's Pebble (Classic Overhanging V2 right on the trail on the Tumbled rocks trail) head 100 feet south and follow the talus field straight up staying near the edge of the trees. At the top of that go straight up into the woods for a couple hundred feet and move right into the other talus field and look up and right and the biggest boulder is the moj boulder.

Couple pads and maybe a spotter

As always unsure on the rating. Felt desperate and conditions were perfect. Psyched to try the sit. It will be hard! Very tenuous and the first few times trying it were not very inspiring.. figured out some fun beta. Needs to be cold. Nov 21, 2011

good just Greg. Did you find some better beta or just had an easier time with the moves? Also, I would advise working the sit/actual line from the actual lowest obvious point. This will only help lead to problems that make more sense. We dont want a 'get over it' scenario where there is a stand, sit, super sit, super duper sit and whatever else they have for that thing now. That gets silly in my opinion. Dec 13, 2011

idk sweaty i skipped one hold via a dyno off one shitty shitty foot so who knows if everyone can do that certain move? its hard for sure. and im positive im starting the corner project in the lowest position there is no where else it can even be climbed i spent like 30 minutes looking at it and discussing with a friend where im trying from is the most logical and pretty sure the lowest starting spot. i have talked to steve, peter, and nic about where to start and it seems i have made up my mind haha. i have almost done it from one move in from the true real low start but that one is probally like 8/9 in it self ( the one starting move i didnt do). training on making that move. and gonna bust back up sometime to link in the dead of winter. shits hard like really hard haha..if i ever even managed to do that it will be for sure hardest line in the midwest something to compare with the amateur and that one thing down in so ill ha i personally think im way over my head on this but idk the moves are coming along to nicely not to project the shit out of it. how is life with you sir?
