Description

start as low as you can, sit down in the dirt under the boulder (far left side of beta photo). move up and out right to the grumpy man's mouth. climb over the lips, nose, eyes, and finish on top of his head. this climb is very rough on the hands, but this is one of the only rough boulders.

Protection

pad, if you are a v3 climber or under expect taking some falls getting up to the face

Location

last boulder you encounter before you hit the aid hill. its on the trail you can't miss the grumpy man face

I don't know if it's because I'm tall but this problem was hard! I had a very hard time getting on and over the "nose". Oct 20, 2015

Add a plus to the grade and start higher and left, then drop down to the normal start for grumpy man. An extra pump! Jan 4, 2013
