Description

I've seen many people miss this fine line by starting too far right... Step onto the center of the face to the right of pulled pork gaining a series of small crimps. Using a very high left foot rock up and stretch way up and left until you can gain a small sloper. From there head straight up using a series of increasingly small crimps - finally using a thumb down (right hand) in order to gain enough elevation to make a blind reach to the top edge.

Protection

a few pads - you drop directly into a hole among the rocks at the base

What do you think about the dyno variation of this Bill? Where you get up to one of the left hand sidepulls then just jump for the lip. This one is static isn't it? I've only done the dyno way, it was fun but scary. Oct 7, 2015

Not sure if this is the line that someone else titled 'growler'? I did this with Colin R. and we named it after a line he had done on the west coast. Scary as hell the first time reaching the lip with only one pad - hence the name howler. Oct 7, 2015
