Periscope Boulder:

-This is a silly little one-move-wonder with an added 10 feet of jug-tastic, easy, monster handholds to finish out on. If you like hard one move problems this one is for you, if not, don’t waste your chalk and spare us all you complaints. This one is super fun in my book.

Find the "Periscope" boulder problem. To the right of this on the same boulder is a low, steep, smooth face (to the right of the thin diagonal finger rails that "periscope" follows). On this face you will find the two starting holds for this line.

Look high for the small slopey left hand crimp, and low for the thin, tiny right hand crimp. Post up a high left foot and pull off the ground.

Make a massive dynamic right move up to the huge jug rail/crack/bucket overhead and prepare for the "helicopter" ejection swing. Hold that and top out over the highest point directly above on the Periscope Boulder.

So I am the king of busting on the odd variations but we did this, albeit with different beta and it was really good. We started on the same holds with a Left foot out on the big triangular ledge you SDS on for Periscope. Pulled up and snagged a good pinch with the left hand, then bumped left again up into a nice sloping ledge and finished periscope. Consensus seemed V6 with 3 ascents. Sep 15, 2013
