Description

Stand start on the undercling rail and a very high crimp/pinch around the middle of the boulder. Establish your feet then pull up hard on the crimp/pinch in order to reach an assortment of gaston/crimps that seem to be facing the wrong way. From here find somewhere to smear your feet and make a toss for a ledge at the top of the boulder, top out.

The starting undercling recently broke, not really changing the difficulty but potentially leaving this problem even more height dependent with the loss of a foothold. If you are under 5'10" this will probably feel harder than v4.

Location

Start around the middle of the Africa Boulder, the (broken) undercling and high crimp/pinch are fairly obvious. The Africa Boulder is found just before the Tigerlily Area if you are following the trail from the Highball area. The boulder is a vertical face with a blank section running through its centre.
