Description

Full body physicality. Looking at hot tuna from left to right, this problem starts deep in the seam beneath the second hueco. There is an amazingly positive and bomber water polished full-pad crimp to start right hand on, with the left matched on a smaller crimp to the left. Feet are technical. Pull off of your butt on the crimp and start shooting out, working toward the hueco (toe hooks?). Once in the hueco, the crux is behind you, and you can get a little rest before exiting the roof via a big flat hold, 2finger halfpad pocket/crimp out left, another wonderful water-polished crimp up high, and a glorious victory jug out left to finish! Keep your head together as you traverse out left. An excellent line in a classic location just begging to be done.

Location

Intersects hot tuna.

Protection

Get a big pad for the roof exit. It's safe, just needs a pad.
