Description

SDS with a large edge for the left hand and a hidden pocket/jug for the right. Make a big move right off the bat to stick the unique triangular, sloping edges in the centre of the wall. From here figure out a way to secure a higher good edge just below the lip and then move into the sloping, difficult top out.

This is an area classic with powerful moves through the face and a tenuous top out which requires a complete change of gears. Shorter individuals will have a harder time sticking the upper ledge as places for your feet disappear quickly, but keep at it and try a few of the less obvious footholds. Excellent climbing on good rock.

Location

Smack in the centre of the Crow Boulder. One of the most-chalked problems here so picking it out shouldn't be too difficult.

Protection

pad or two, watch the block sitting just to the right of the problem as a fall from the crux or the top out tends to send climbers heading towards it.
