Description

Stand start on thin but obvious crimps on the right side of the highball boulder. Follow the line of crimps direct, making a series of long movements to gain rounded holds, finishing with a somewhat highball mantel. Creative use of a prominent crimp flake, and more importantly technical footwork will bring success!

Treat the prominent crimp flake (gained with the first move after pulling on) with care, it flexes noticeably on its underside.

I thought this was an excellent technical crimp line, only two stars because of the flexing crimp.

Location

Located on the right hand side of the Highball boulder, with the starting crimps a few feet right of Waiting in Line for the Electric Chair.
As with the other problems on this boulder the downclimb is a bit tricky.

Protection

pad(s) and a spotter
This problem is not as high as Electric Chair but is fairly sustained near the top and has an angled landing.
The spotter will especially come in handy if the flexing hold decides to snap off.

This is a really nice technical crimping face problem. As good as any in the area. Jun 12, 2017
