This problem starts a few feet left of the center of the tall face with the diagnol cracks. Sit or squat start an awkward holds. Make a hard pull up to gain the thin seams and continue up and right following the crack system until you can reach good edges.

The top out is a bit desperate with a crimp and a small xenolith knob feature.

The sit start goes at v8 and a right start is also possible about 4 feet right of the sit. The right start is a v7, and uses a sweet slopey pinch blob and joins the v6 with a small crimp.


This problem is to the right of a large tree growing close to the boulder. A few feet down and right of the undercling features in a crack system.


A few pads and a spotter.
