Description [Suggest Change]

This problem is a fun problem that is unlike any other in the area. John Gill put this problem up in the 1960s. Despite it being right in between inner and outer outlet it rarely see's ascents. Start with your right hand on a small crimp on the face to the right of the crack. left hand goes on a small protruding crimp on the lower part of the crack. Get high feet and knee bar into the crack. Move your right hand slowly through your other and into the crack. Adjust your feet at this point and go high with hands either in the crack or some small features on the face. You can fist jam the upper crack at the top of just smear and finish on the face.

This thing is cool and gets lots of shade. Other methods are possible than the one the description describes. I started from a stand with vague holds double gastoning the groove (not sure what Gill did but it made sense to me). The opening moves felt the hardest. It's also more like 15 feet tall instead of the twenty the page says. One big pad felt safe. 5 days ago
