Description

The sit start to v2 my A**. Pretty awkward, painful, and contrived, to be honest, but if you ae in love with Pway sloping lip traverses (Bodacious, Mob Boss, Bulletproof, etc.) then it is probably worth a go.

Sit start at the base of the arete on a left-leaning sloper rail. Traverse it left for a few moves before gaining a thing LH gastone and executing the crux drop-down into a tiny nubbin. Quickly move past it into the start of v2 my A** and finish up that problem. It would be a bomb if it ended after the first section, but since it includes such an amzing problem for the last 2/3 of it, I'll be generous and give it a star.

Location

On the Pinnacle Boulder, sit starts about 4 feet below the start of v2 my A** and about 10 feet right.

Protection

Two pads or so, and a spotter for the upper section.

Sure, but it's called 'V2 My Ass Sit Down' in Bryce's guide as well. So, I guess I'm politely suggesting that you should change the name. We shouldn't be renaming existing boulder problems. Oct 13, 2016

I suppose but I was in the moment, man! I had to make up a name! Oct 10, 2016

Why isn't this just called 'V2 My Ass Sit'? Which is what it should be called... Oct 9, 2016

Wow that's impressive! I can never stick the drop down into that knub. I can't say I love this problem, but it's ok if you're REALLY bored :)

P.S: I made up the name for reasons unknown Oct 1, 2016

I actually love this sit start. Great hard traversing moves. The crux for me will always be the rest of V2 My Ass though. I can do the sit moves more consistently. Oct 1, 2016
