Description

This problem is located on the west side of the Joe 97 Boulder. By no means am I claiming a FA, it's just a really fun problem, so I wanted to share. If you have any info on the problem, let me know and I'll make things right. The grade was shared to me by someone who had climbed it a while ago, but I thought it was a tough problem, so V5 sounded fine to me.

This starts on the left side of the west face on a diagonal rail. I've heard that in the past people have started on a lower, but better, hold. Move right with pockets and crimps and huecos. Once you have your hands on good holds, move upward on big slopers and poor feet. Top out.

Location

It is located on the west side of the Joe 97 Boulder. Once on top, you'll see an obvious downclimb on the northwest side of the block. This rock sees a lot of sun in the afternoon, so if you're not a fan of that, I'd go early or wait until evening.

Protection

Pad and a spotter.

Going straight up from a sit start from the two large pockets is a worthwhile variation. Stick a small sloper, and slap for a jug knob. Dec 7, 2013
