Description

All Hail Hibernation ascends a slightly overhung face over a perfect landing.

Stand start with hands matched on the shelf and a high left foot edge. From there, pop up to a right hand crimp, toe hook to prevent the barn door, hit the left hand sidepull, and move a foot up to the shelf. At this point, it's either a dyno to the lip (crux) or reach a left hand to a small gaston, plant both feet on the shelf and pop to the lip (crux), and top it out.

As a note, some folks may need to stack two pads to reach the beginning foot hold.

Location

This is on the Northwest corner of Falls From Above Boulder.

Protection

A few pads is nice, but the landing is perfect.

Stellar problem! Took me about 6 visits, and I've seen it done several ways now, including dyno-ing through the crux, but however it goes, it's great. Thanks for sharing, Nick! Feb 17, 2014

You're welcome, Nick. I hope to see you out sometime. And as an aside, as an administrator, thanks for the accuracy and compendious descriptions to MP. It makes our job providing accurate information easier. Oct 23, 2013

This problem is height-dependent, while shorter folks will have an easier time down low. If you are taller, you will feel bunched up at the start due to the high feet and getting to the crimp and side-pull will be the crux (and avoiding the barn door). While dynoing or dead-pointing from the gaston will not be an issue. Oct 22, 2013
