Description [Suggest Change]

Start sitting in a bit of a hole. I started with my left on the large pinch and my right below it on a crimp/edge. Piece together a way to the top and avoid hitting the boulder behind you. Trickier than it looks and surprisingly powerful.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is downhill and right of 'The Whip'. You cannot see this problem until you're basically on top of it.

I added this route because I tried it (and climbed it) for the first time today and found it surprisingly tricky, powerful and quite fun. Quite good for such a short line.

It's amazing how many lowballs there are at Round Pond. And even more amazing how much fun most of them are. May 28, 2013

This is really a pretty cool little boulder problem. Very powerful. I think it is a solid v4 because it is significantly harder than, Bring the Ruckus, Cause for Commotion, Crimp Stand and Hobbit Hole, all of which are solid v3's. Jul 27, 2013
