Description

Climb the path of least resistance through the center of the face of this boulder utilizing a flurry of crimps, sloping pockets, credit cards, foot switches, and a lot of balance, culminating in one last committing high step to a good pocket and an easier top out.
A very cryptic slab climb. This problem will feel relatively easy if you have it dialed and don't worry about the fall, but your first few times on it may leave you scared and confused.
The R rating comes from the commitment of the last move, coupled with the ankle breaking rock laying at the bottom if you fail to kick away from the slab as you plummet.

The rock quality is good, but I would not do this problem after the rains come through.

Location

On the bullet damaged face of the gunshot boulder.

Protection

Pads/spotters. Good falling practices will keep you safe on this climb, however the protruding rock at the bottom could be very problematic if you hit it while falling.
