Description [Suggest Change]

On the left side of the Cryptic Boulder, start on a good edge with matched hands. Move out left to a good sidepull, then go up right to one of the pebbles/pockets on the face. Throw up with left again to finish the problem. Much of the difficulty comes from tricky footwork.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is on the left face of the Cryptic Boulder. It is one problem left of Cryptic Magician.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Pads and a spot.

I broke the big pebble (foot) that is really useful to getting to the lip. Probably still goes with a high foot on start. Probably puts this to a V7-V8 depending on how tall you are and how flexible. Mar 31, 2018
