This is a Black Mountain classic with perfect rock and a committing crux at the end – a scary deadpoint off greasy smears to the lip. Sweet!
It gets a lot of sun so early morning or late afternoon are the best times to do it.


On the south side of the boulder.

Ah i see, interesting. Nice lesson in some area history. Thanks! Apr 13, 2015
This is one of several problems pictured and described in John Long's 1980 Pumping Granite article.
"The Scoop, a test in balance and opposition palming - footholds are minute and a brute's approach ensures failure."
1980 means no crash pads and no sticky rubber. Yikes! Apr 13, 2015
