Start standing with both hands matched on a slopey shelf/ledge. Make a hard pull left to a diagonal crimp rail/sidepull. Then move right and up via a small crimp and a few good, but hollow flakes to a tricky move to the lip.

A very good climb, with fun and engaging movement. Move delicately on the flakes!

There is a sit start to this problem. While it is a little bit harder, it takes away from the quality of the line and is not really worth doing.


This climb is located on a smaller boulder directly across from 'Mouthful Of Chalk'. When approaching from Boulder Natural, head towards the first set of very large boulders. This problem is located in a cave, formed by the Mad Hatter Boulder and the Swamp Thing Boulder.


A couple of pads are ideal.

This is a good line, with a cool opening crux move which leads to fun climbing to the lip. Oct 13, 2015

Not sure when, but it looks like the crimp/sidepull thing you go to with your left hand is completely gone now. There is a bad crimp higher up amd to the right. Thing looks much harder now, though i could be wrong. Jun 18, 2016

I agree this is a really fun, aesthetic problem. I highly recommend it. It can also be done by starting matched on the arĂȘte. Jul 9, 2016

The sit start is actually pretty fun and makes the problem a couple grades harder. Dec 3, 2016
