Sit start on jugs. Move right and up to slopers and final holds.

Far east side of Happy Hunting Grounds. Really it's between The Keep and HHG in the gully.

i also have wondered at this problem's name. I climbed it years ago, with Darren. We call it "that steep problem in the valley". Not very creative, I know. It's well worth the walk, though. Sep 3, 2013

Good to know I wasn't hallucinating. I think it's pretty fun, and should clean up a bit with some traffic. Sep 3, 2013

I believe this is called 'Pit Viper', super fun. We just cleaned up 3-4 lines just to the right (walk through the small corridor between the boulders, with the fallen tree) at around V3-V7. Super fun lines that are also cleaning up with traffic, but once everything is said and done I think this boulder will host 5-10 good lines. Check it, yo. Jul 3, 2015
