Description

An awesome problem with big fun moves and good holds. Sit start with the left hand on a finger jug or a side pull ear slightly lower. Right hand on a left facing jug. Pull on and reach over with the left hand to a jug, then reach right hand to another good hold. From here climb up then make a big move left to an edge. Bring the right hand over and prep yourself for a big dead point move to a small crimp, or a big hold 6 inches higher. From here pull up and grab the arete and stand up on to the slab to top out.

Location

On The Island Boulder. This climb starts slightly right of center on the giant diagnol crack and flake system.

Protection

I prefer to start this line one move into the climb from the regular start as the first move is kinda ugly and doesn't add much difficulty to the climb.

I went up and left from the good triangle cut out edge thing, to some small crimps and then up from there.

There was a hold further out left that broke and got bigger, I didn't use it but it seems solid now. May 19, 2016
