Description [Suggest Change]

This is the easier, stand start variation of the V7 Termite Be Your Last Breath.

Very sharp slab with a slightly positive incline. Incredibly small holds and bad footholds. All side pulls to the right of the holds are out-of-bounds, see photo.

Start standing on the small rock beneath the boulder and pull up off the ground on the left-hand side pull and the right-hand crimp, as shown in the beta photo.

First move is left hand to the small, sharp crimp above your right hand, chalked intermediates can be seen in the photo.
Then right hand to the wide sloper pinch directly above and bring your feet up. Right foot high, stand up, reach for the left hand side pull and lean back on it. Crank in with the left and find a good, wide sloper above and then top.

Location [Suggest Change]

Far left side of Termite Boulder, all side pulls to the right of the holds are not in, very easy descent on the other side of the boulder.
Look for the huge termite mound on the left as soon as you hit blank rock walking up from the road.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Flat landing, rock just below, pads definitely required
