Description

So-called "classic" climbs are often hard for the grade. I won't speculate why, but FHS definitely falls in this category. You'll have to earn your single point on this one.
That said, it has cool open-handed holds, tensiony moves, is safe, and climbs exceptionally well. I highly recommend this problem.
Start seated on crimps, and climb straight up through the sloping shelves to the good lip, and rockover at about ten feet.

Location

Right side of Slice of Cake boulder. Look for the large ledgy holds that lead straight up to the lip.
The Slice of Cake boulder is the 20 foot vaguely wave-shaped boulder with a large bulbous knob at the crest. It is in the center of Barney's Rubble, and is distinct from the walls around. The climbing face points towards the road.

Protection

1-2 pads

Grade suggestions are from V1+ to V4. Should give you an idea. Easier than Fridge, the Pocket etc. Maybe it was humid that day (it rained) but it was HARD. Did like 3 tries and gave up and I max out at V7. Oh well. Aug 1, 2016
