Description

A quality problem on a beautiful, lichen speckled feature.
Start from a sit. Complete a tough first move to an incredible, triangular knob. Move up the bulge towards good holds at the top.

Location

The Pit Viper boulder sits in the drainage between Enlightenment Ridge and Happy Hunting Grounds.
Diamondback is on the downhill side, opposite Pit Viper.

The Pit Viper boulder's been getting a lot of attention recently (mainly by Tim King, Niko G, and Ray Martin) and I'm stoked to contribute this problem. In the end this boulder will likely deserve its own page.

I put this problem up on Saturday, and by Sunday it had a couple repeats. The upper holds have broken twice already, so expect the problem and the grade to fluctuate as things settle. Jun 14, 2016
