Sit start in the right corner. Work your way up the arete and crimps to the horizontal crack and top out straight up. Popular beta for the starting moves is to match a heel on the right-hand starting hold.

Dyno Direct is an alternative for this climb. Go straight from the sit-start into the horizontal crack without using intermediary holds.


In the main boulder cluster of Devil's Half-Acre (marked on the Sourlands Mountain Preserve map).

Some friends and I did a variation on this climb this past weekend. Same start as go make some babies, bump right hand high up the arete, bump left hand up to the higher crimp sidepull. Bring your left foot up to that kinda loose flake by the start. Then throw a high right heel hook on the arete, almost as high as your right hand. Then throw your right hand all the way up to the top lip. There is a small knob right at the edge of the lip you can catch. Match hands on that top lip and top out same as go make some babies. The good horizontal crack from go make some babies is off for hands, on for feet for top out though. I'd rate it V4-V5. Feb 21, 2017

Apparently, there is a V7 version of this climb where you have to go from the start holds to the crack in the middle without using the arete aside from the start hold and heel hook? May 1, 2016
