Found the real name! Updated it.

Starts on a high rail at 6ish feet. Swing your foot up to the big shelf then match a hand next to it and drop the foot down into a heel hook. Reach up for a jug and top out using the high arrete.


Located on the same boulder as Boomerang. Go down to the left of Boomerang until you see graffiti on the boulder, its right past this.




I just changed the name. Talked to the guy who showed it to me a few years ago and he said he cleaned it off and as far as he knows got the FA. Asked him what to name it and he said Bill Don't Know (since I told him even Bill Patton didn't even know of the line) Jul 1, 2014
Do you know who it was that told you they think they got the first ascent?

That face left of Boomerang has been extensively climbed between 2000-2005, and I'm sure before then.

IIRC, there are 5 or 6 lines that have been done on that face. I'll have to look for my notes and walk by the boulder, and I'll get back with more info. Jul 1, 2014
Its not the slabby face, its past that further down to the left, past the graffiti. Walk all the way around from Boomerang until you see a big bulge/shelf coming out at like head level. It was Arian Bates who showed it to me. Jul 2, 2014
Thanks. Looking for new climbs at that grade for when my shoulder heals, so I'm psyched to hear about it. Jul 4, 2014
Posted pics to help you out finding the climb. Jul 7, 2014
The stand was done at least as early as '02 or '03 and the sit isn't much newer than that. Aug 18, 2014
Any idea who sent it first Marlon? Aug 22, 2014
Sorry for very slow reply but i'm really not sure who sent the stand first because i know it's been around for a while but Tyler Sandberg did the FA of the sit and called it Body Slam (not 100% on the name... I would ask Benny about this. He's really the best source of info on the notch at this point) Nov 8, 2014
