Description

An illuminate project. Stand start matched at the obvious incut crimp, making a move up and left to a terrible pinch/crimp. From this position, dyno straight up to finish on the same top-out as main boulder right project.

Super tough but fun once you do it the first time! You can also dyno from the starting incut crimp and the grade is the same.

The first 'recorded ascent' as a dyno was put up by Tom O'Maley in early 2015, though this area has been climbed for years and it's likely one of the 'old-schoolers' did this move years ago. Either way, it's super fun and quite hard to figure out (Jonathan Hogue was there for the F.A. and completed the 2nd Ascent soon thereafter).

Here is a short edit featuring this line and more areas where we've established and repeated some of these stellar lines: youtube.com/watch?v=Z7N7YUA…

Location

Main boulder, right side.

Protection

Crash-pads and spotters. Be mindful of the pointy rocks inhabiting the landing here as you WILL FEEL them through the pads in the result of a fall. Injuries have been recorded, though it looks totally safe.

A fun little line. Seems very likely that this was done long ago, as it's a super obvious line. I've seen pictures of people on it from 2010. So, the FA info should probably be blank or certainly not credited to you since you say Tom (a friend of mine) did it before you? May 4, 2018

I'll also agree with Christian. There was a large group of boulderers living on the island between 2011-2013 and all of us climbed this line. May 15, 2018

The trad climber in me refused to do a silly dyno, so I hand foot matched hit an intermediate and then the lip. Feels like a V6 or so. Aug 7, 2018
