Start sitting matched on an obvious down-pulling double crimp flake. Make hard moves up past a razor pinch to an interesting slot crimp and trend right to top out through edges and pockets. From the stand about two moves in it's somewhere around V6 or 7 and far less sharp.

This could have been done previously but had zero chalk or boot rubber and crumbled significantly in the first few tries. If this is your FA, please let me know and I will update the description/name/etc; I just couldn't find anything and Foose said he hadn't heard of anyone doing it.


Starting at the finish jug of Life Begins at 40, crawl under the cave and walk up into the small amphitheater on the other side. The obvious undercling start problem near the vague corner is Kristi Yamaguchi Lifetime Achievement Award. The Hand That Bleeds is 40ish feet left and uphill on the same wall, hidden in a small alcove blocked by a boulder. Listed as a project in the Matt Wilder book; it's #9 on page 270 if you need further info finding the problem.


One pad and a spotter will do just fine.
