Description

An interesting one-mover problem with a neat pocket for the start.

Start with the little mono-pocket (it's possible to stack fingers in it, or get a thumb catch and turn it into a pocket-pinch), and the slopey crimp just to the right. Find some feet, pull off the ground and make either an outrageous throw around the mini-roof to the top or go to the lip of the roof then bump to the top. Either way your feet will probably cut at some point. Match and top out.

There used to be a better crimp but it has broken.

Location

From the start of Overlooked, look down and to the right and you should see a mini-roof (that's great for doing pull-ups) and a little pocket beneath the roof. The pocket is where this starts.

Protection

1 pad is fine.

Pulling off the ground is pretty tricky and it's hard to generate power off of the starting holds because you automatically grease off of them. youtube.com/watch?v=6zss9pt… Aug 10, 2016

I got back on this today and damn it is much harder than I first thought. I was able to pull off the ground on the start holds, but I wasn't able to do the same on the holds you'd be on after the first move.

I also discovered that it looks like someone had had a fire underneath this problem at some point, so if there used to be any holds on the mini roof they are long gone. There is a big scar where what looks like the old right hand crimp once was, and another scar where it looks like a flake used to be, it might have been a crucial foot. Either way this is probably harder than it originally was. Jun 26, 2016
