Sit in the hole match hands in the crack. Get the huge foot below you and a good smear. Smear your heart out and pull up to the good finger lock with your right. Once you get there grab the arete with your left and work your feet around. Get into a layback position to bring your right hand up high and bring your left foot up onto the arete. Rock over to your left and work up to the lip. Top out the climb.


Around the corner from Skate Shoes and uphill from Smiley.

So I am gonna put it out there that I believe that I got the first ascent of this rig. When I sent it around 2002, I could not find any of the usual suspects that laid claim to it. Also the corner hold and especially the topout holds were covered in lichen, which is what laid the foundation of a first ascent in my mind. I think V5 or V5+ is what I graded it. I did not name it because I was not 100% sure that I was the first ascentionist. I did do the full on sit start. If the current generation is calling it Paula, go for it. This is a scary problem...and one of the better steep highballs at Gretna. Dec 15, 2014
