Description

This is a fun route that has crimps, slopers, and a little bit of compression too (and pinches, although you don't need to pinch them). It's a great fun little climb that's right along the short cut from the fire road to the lower slabs.

The regular line is a sit start, although you could also do a further sit start which feels about v5 and a stand which feels about v2.

Sit start on a good low left hold, and right hand on a good edge. Bump, slap, crimp, and squeeze your way up to the top. There's a good juggy sloper at the top to help with the funky topout. The downclimb is super obvious and you'll be looking straight at it when you top out. Now go do it again!

Location

From the fire road you'll see a massive boulder with a huge crack in it. This is the Mir Boulder, there's a trail that follows to the right side of this boulder, follow that. This climb is located maybe 40 feet further down the trail than Ethnic Cleansing. When you see a diamond shaped boulder stacked on top of another boulder, you'll know you're there.

Protection

One well placed pad is fine, the landing is pretty good.
