Description

A very difficult and rarely climbed line. Sit start on the right side of the rock below the arete with the right hand on a juicy pinch and the left hand on the sloping edge. Pull on making some difficult compression moves and climb up and rightward.
Stand start at v3 utilizing the deep slot.

Location

Located on the Checkerboard Boulder, this line is on the same face on the far right.

Protection

Crash pads and spotters

This sounds cool. I couldn't find any ticks for this thing on 8a so its definitely under the radar. I'll have to give it a shot when I try Checkerboard. Feb 20, 2017

Do you know if there is any footage of this climb? It looks super cool and the compression moves seem like it would interest more climbers and urge them to get on it. The holds weren't chalked when I was there. Seems like it could be a neo-classic. Mar 29, 2016
