Description

A dyno and dead-point test-piece. If you like dyno's and steep overhanging faces along with a bit of choss, you'll love this.

Start low at two crimps, the left has recently broken, but the first move is a big move left hand to a side pull. From here gather up your strength and find your feet and launch up right hand to a good side pull flake.
Let out a Sharma scream and take the swing! Make a few more big moves up and right to top out carefully on hollow holds. A little brittle, and slightly sharp.

Bring skin, superglue, tape, and crutches.
This line obtains classic in the Bishop Select guidebook.

Location

On the opposite side of Solitaire. This is the steeply overhanging face you first see when walking towards the boulder from Painted Cave or Checkerboard.

Protection

Multiple pads and a spotter. The hill is slanted.
