Description

The most obvious start on the Olympus boulder:
-Hype would get 4 stars if the right hand crimps weren’t so damn small and aggressive.

Find the massive scoop out of the roof (below Hyperion Crack, to the right of Aethos Arête) and sit start here on the low jug (low right corner of the scoop below the overhead crack). Work up through compression moves using the slopey corner and the wicked fingertip crimps out right. Climb into the crack overhead.

Once at the jug at the top of the crack (at the little Rhododendron tree) head right into the high crimps of "FSM", make the big move to the jug/s overhead, and top the boulder out.

-NOTE: This line was NOT climbed with a knee pad... I don’t know if it would actually help but it may(?) take several grades off?? I have no clue. By all means use one, but this is grade is applied to this line without one (I never felt the need to ever use my knee or that it wouldve helped).

Also: please don’t climb up direct above the Rhodo. This will hurt the nice tree and the blocks above look sketch. Make the hard right moves into FSM and embrace the difficulty.
