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.




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
