Description

Before even thinking about doing this problem, get a bevy of pads and spotters. Or don't, and play the tough-guy. Definitely one of the more committing highball-ish problems at Skofield, with a "death" boulder below.

Either way, this problem hasn't been courted too much since the 90's, and only recently has seen attention from local climbers. And while its obscurity isn't surprising given the nature of the fall-zone, the movement is (in my opinion) as good as To a Grave. After easy moves down low, turn the lip on to bad holds. Crux is at the top.

Location

The roadside aspect of the Caretaker Boulder. Just right of To a Grave, and just left of Undercarriage. Sit-start on boulder.

Protection

Pads and ninja-spotters.
