Start with your right hand triangular crimp and your left hand on a blocky pinch with a high right heel and a low left foot. Make a series of compressiony moves with tricky feet to the slopey topout.


From facing the Whip walk 25 feet right. The problem starts in a cave to the right.


1-2 pads

I wasn't exactly sure how to grade this route. I would like any other opinions. It feels harder then any of the other nines I've done but was hesitant to grade it in the double digits. Jun 3, 2012

Sent this one tonight. Pretty cool line. The first 2 moves are the crux for sure but the rest is no gimme. Hard one to grade because of how hard it is to keep the right heel. It really comes down to power and technique. I would say v9 is very appropriate though. Ethan's video really does a great job on showing off this problem.

The right hand start hold felt a little chossy as a heads up. I could see it breaking off in the near future. Dec 9, 2016
