Description

Tall proud line that begins with a sit start V6 dyno to a rail that is traversed into a weird finger lock thing followed by some crimpy lock-off V4/5-ish moves to yield the top-out. Four star route with bold moves up high.

Location

This boulder is right off the trail although Combustion is on the back side leaning away from the trail.

Protection

Ideally you will need a good 4 pads and an attentive spotter. The only reason I didn't give this an R rating is that the fall is clean onto flat ground and the finishing moves are more like V4/5 which is easier relative to the start. That said, there is big (nearly 20 foot) fall potential from up high so don't underestimate the potential for injury from a slip up there. Enough said...

Combustion is the third boulder problem in this video (the caption shows the first move). Pretty proud line although the climber in the video does make the first move look a bit more dramatic than necessary imo....
