Description

Multiple crazy hand-positions and the repeated use of a single undercling make this problem a gem. Dean Privett, the head-setter at Santa Barbara Rock Gym, loves underclings (and I do mean loves), so I coined this problem after him.

Location

Begins on the right face of the boulder. Sit-start with left hand on good jug/crimp, and right hand on small vertical crimp. Fire up right to the big sloper/pinch, then head straight up via tricky feet, lots of re-positioning, and some trickery.

Protection

Pads. Uneven bouldery landing.
