Description

Not to be missed if you love face problems, but has likely only seen less than a handful of accents. Stand start on pockets and shallow edges. Work up through some miniscule crimpers to a beautiful sloper topout. Originally SDS, I have a feeling that the tree has grown enough to make the SDS more awkward.

Location

Located on the Left side of the Blok just left of a big tree.

Protection

pad, landing looks sketchy but the crux and topout put you over the small boulder to the left. Cover it with a second pad and it is a great spot to land. It actually shortens the fall.

Awesome! as a SDS what grade do you give it?

Does the SDS start under the tree then? I checked out the SDS seems awkward, but def harder than the stand. Jan 20, 2013
The problem known as "the thing" V5 was called "brown star" and was a SDS and was sent in 1999 along with, the right traverse, and the problem known as "driver". All 3 done in 1999 by Andy Quillen and Shawn McCauley. the bouldering timeline goes back much farther than it (or the people) get credit for. Jan 18, 2013
