Description

This problem ascends the left boulder of the Squirming Coil Area. Do a low start matched on a right-leaning sidepull and with your feet on the low angle slab to the left. Move to the diagonal crack, and continue straight up the chalked arete until you can top out.

This problem is listed in Colorado Bouldering Front Range by Phillip Benningfield and Matt Samet as a V2 for not using the low grey slab on the left. In this case, I choose for the left block to be usable and is being added so it can be enjoyed in its own right.

Location

This problem is on the left of the two large boulders that make up the Squirming Coil Area, and starts same as Contrivance but goes straight up the left arete.

Protection

A crashpad. The landing is flat, but as you get higher, you move left over the slab on the left.

Andrew, you're correct, the book lists this as a V2 for keeping off the low grey slab. I updated the description to reflect that. In this case, I enjoyed this easier version where it was included, so I decided to list it as that. Nov 11, 2017

The guidebook says to keep your feet off the slab to the left, which makes this feel way harder than V1. Nov 10, 2017
