Description

A very cool looking over hang problem that is worth seeking out. Start matched down low on good incuts and move right toward more good holds. Make a big committing move toward a right hand side pull. Snag this and really crank down on it and move left hand to the seam on the lip. Continue right to good but perhaps dirty holds in the seams of the crack and top it out.

Avoiding the block down low for feet is really how I wanted to climb this originally but its very hard to ignore, so I used it for feet making this climb much easier than I expected...

Location

Just up the hill from mammoth rock. The obvious overhanging rock with the cleaned face.

Protection

3 or 4 pads and a spotter. Landing is blocky.

I was expecting this climb to be much harder than it was but while cleaning we uncovered a crucial right hand sidepull to help get your left hand to the lip. If that sidepull breaks it will be many grades harder. A cool overhang that unfortunately has a pretty blocky landing. Not sure on the grade yet. I'll repeat it and do some more cleaning.
