Description

This one is often lost in the shadow of it's famous brother Overlooked (v4). Even though we always have time to take another lap on one of the best problems in the park (or world) it can take a while to get curious about the other lines in the same area.

A pretty fun climb provided you have the requisite reach. The first move is rather large and might just be a show stopper if V6 is anywhere near your limit.

After the big initial undercling move navigate a crimp or two, a cool sloper move then find your way to the top.

Take care with pad placement cause the landing zone isn't perfect.

Location

20 feet to the left of overlooked there is a large tree. This problem starts just right of the tree.

Protection

A few pads and a spotter are helpful as the landing zone is between a tree and a funky rock.

The long move off the underclings is not that long of a move if you use good beta. After gaining the lone crimp on the face, somewhat exciting moves (due to the sketchy/awkward landing) lead to a final reach to a nice 'thank god' jug/edge. Or at least that's the way it felt for me. :)

The landing can be made reasonably flat/safe with a few pads. A spotter is helpful as well.

Not a bad little climb. Thanks for cleaning it up a bit, Lee. May 11, 2015
