Description

Start from a stand with your left hand on the arete and right on an undercling that will pinch you if not grabbed just right. Pull on and climb up through the center of the wall through edges, a sidepull and big moves. An easy mantle gets you on top. A real gem I think, and surely one of the best of the grade in park. Wait for a dry day, this thing can be wet sometimes.

Location

Just above the Burmese Python/Shaking hands boulder in the pit.

Protection

I had four pads. I put 2 on the slab and two on the bottom. The slab never came into play.

being a day of the year, what's about to fall off your 8a card also affects how hard the problem feels. Nov 12, 2014

Being in that hole I think the humidity might change the problem a lot. When we were there it was on the 8 to 8- range from any other place I have climbed. 4 stars anywhere. Nov 11, 2014

Nice work! Glad people are climbing this thing! I thought it was super fun. FYI at most climbing areas, though maybe not here, this would be v9, so take that into consideration when you travel! Nov 10, 2014

Big moves on an overhanging face with positive holds. The landing isn't too bad either. Super Fun!

Definitely pad the slab/side-wall, when a group of us was on this Yesterday there was some occasional & harmless glancing off the slab/side-wall Nov 2, 2014

Great problem - one of the best at Burma. Not so bad - v8? Like tunder but a little harder? People should climb this and pretend Waffle House never happened... Oct 23, 2014
