Description

As it names implies, "Tiptoe" is a technical boulder problem that focuses a lot on balance and sure feet to get the send. The crux is getting past the large chalked-up undercling - right hand to a good crimper, throwing left and pulling past the triangle-shaped sloper to a large bomber crimp that you can match on. A high right foot definitely helps here (use the crimper you used a right hand on above the undercling). Throw right to an awesome pinch, backstep your left foot, throw left to the large side-pull, and pull over the top leading with your right leg/foot. This is just the sequence that works for me, as I am sure that there are multiple ways to send this problem.

This boulder feels almost slicker with each passing year!

Location

Located left of the arete on House Boulder's West Face. Use the tree next to "Speedball" to shimmy down.
