Gumption

V3, Boulder, 12 ft,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
Colorado > Grand Junction… > Unaweep Canyon > Nine Mile Hill > Mecca Boulder Area > Pink Floyd Area > Solmar Stone

Description

Sit start with hands matched on the large, round feature at the arete. From there, make a toss up and left to an edge, match hands, throw a foot onto the start hold, leave the arete early to the right, reach the edges at the lip on the slab, and top it out.

Location

It climbs the northeast arete of Solmar. Shares some of the same rock as the problem Taradiddle. Gumption begins with the much larger start hold and abandons the arete early for an easier finish.

Protection

A pair of pads will work well. The landing is good, but there is a rock that creates an uneven surface though.
