Description

Rather than starting on the left side, and traversing out, a la Cave Man, start sitting with the undercling, and climb straight up. Don't use the left side of the crack for this one (ELIMINATE). Normally, I loathe eliminates (for many reasons that I don't have time to get into here), but this boulder is fun enough that it's actually worth it. Shocking. It flows well, and climbs differently than if you use the left side of the crack.
Watch yourself on the potential back dab while you're topping it out.

Location

In the little cave on the right side of the formation as you walk up from the turn-out. Cave Man starts deep and traverses, using everything. Cave Club starts under the right face, and avoids the rock to the left of the big crack.

Protection

1-2 pads.

Originally called Neanderthal Man in the old Dr Topo guide: "Sit Start with a slopey right-facing undercling and climb the right boulder without the boulder to the left (no jams)." Oct 22, 2018
