Description

Best climb in the area and potentially one of the best v6s in Bishop. This climb utilizes giant slopey huecos along with some hard to grip slopers and also brings out some compression and footwork jessery. Toe hooks and heel hooks galore! Bring some skin of you plan on trying the top out in the Sun!

Sit start on the rightside of a large cave at a good hueco. Make a few hard moves left to the edge of the large hueco and set up for a big reach around move to a blind hueco outside the cave. From here swing over a left heel And match the slopey hueco. Make your way up the side of it using some hard tension moves and match feet. Reach up to some slightly grainy slopers until you can make a desperate move to a crack up top.

Location

On the South facing side of the boulder.

Protection

Pads and a spotter.
