Description [Edit]

I finally got the name of this and updated it, its actual name is Local Hero.

Start low to the right of the stand start with a right hand on the arrete and left hand on a tiny edge far out left. Make a quick move to an edge on the lip below the rail for the stand start, get a slopey hold with your right then climb into the stand start and finish.

Location [Edit]

Down to the left of Boomerang past the graffiti.

loved this line, remember working on this one with you Sam, if i remember, theres a dangerous rock right below the topout, but the topout is really easy Jan 23, 2015

I talked to someone yesterday who knew the actual name for this route (which I promptly forgot). I guess there is secret beta to the sit start that makes it more like a 4 or 5 although I did not see the beta. I guess this would mean there is no stand start? May 16, 2015

I was introduced to this as "Body Slam" V5. I would agree that it's more like a V4 once you get in the right position. May 27, 2017
