The Mask

V4, Boulder, 10 ft,  Avg: 3 from 3 votes
FA: Dec 2013?
Virginia > Southwest Virgi… > Cascades Boulde… > Pyramid Area > Top Ramen Boulder

Description

This was not previously listed on MP but is a very high quality line that likely has been climbed before, any beta of FA would be appreciated. If you are in the V4 range and at Cascades this should be on your short list.

SDS on R hand under cling and L hand pocket/sidepull directly under Top Ramen. Make a move up to the Ramen Ledge then move Left up a angling Rail using various gastons, pinches and edges. None of the holds are huge, but with the right movement they work well. Snag the Left arete and top out by reaching back to a huge Left hand jug.

Location

Face of Top Ramen Boulder

Protection

A few pads, pretty uneven landing and some potential to swing into boulder to the left, keep it under control!
