Description

Sit start with an obvious horizontal hold to the right and a low side pull on the left arĂȘte. Climb straight up.

Location

Prow-ish feature left of "Easy on Backside of Burma"

Protection

Fairly low ball, it could be climbed with one pad but there is the butt end of a fallen tree right in the start/landing so a couple more could be helpful.

Terry. Thanks for the info. I updated the name and the FA (assuming you were the first).

On another note, I found the sit start that works into the crack to be a very good V0. It actually required some thought and had good movement (rare for a V0). It was fun to watch my girlfriend work it out. I believe that a variation of it is already on MP so I didn't add it. Oct 18, 2014
There are several stand alone problems and variations on this short prow and the sides that have been done ranging from V0 to V3. I cleaned and climbed them shortly after the Burma area was discovered. I called the problem you are referring to "The Nose". The rotten stump at the base was still a live tree when I first did the problems so the start was tight squeeze back then. I was out there a week ago and climbed them again but didn't bother to clean the top outs. The crack and face to the right of the nose are ok V0 warmups. It was good to see chalk on the problems and that others are getting on them. Oct 17, 2014

No idea if this was done before but the top was super mossy so I thought it may have been passed over since it is somewhat short. A few good moves from the sit and worth doing if you are in the area.
Not sure the grade is accurate. Oct 16, 2014
