Description [Suggest Change]

Start on the left side of El Parasol roof, Left hand in an incut gaston and right hand on sidepull under the roof. Move to the slopey lip, sort out your hands, then do some tenuous foot work and punch for a good hold. Short, cool holds, and packs a punch.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the El Parasol Boulder which is a couple hundred feet above the North shore beach on the West bluff and slightly north.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A couple pads.

I added some moves to this today and it is now a harder and better problem. Apr 20, 2013

A testpiece in tension & control. Also, the zebra striped slopers at the lip are incredible. A low may be possible and hard (v12?) but the landing would require a ton of work. Nov 8, 2013
