Description

A rare overhanging pocket problem. The name means "Try Hard" in Navajo. Start very low under the northeast side on large looking small feeling pockets. Utilize more jugs, pockets, underclings, and a even a sneaky knee bar to find your way out to some small crimps above the overhang. The problem finishes in one last powerful huck to the lip. The mantle after is fairly easy.

Location

North east side of the Begay boulder.

Protection

pads and spotter

I looked at this route six months ago and it seemed thoroughly impossible, even though it was a proud line I did not even think it was projectable.

Today I went out with a different goal in mind and wound up also getting on this. It was much easier than I initially expected and I strongly encourage anyone in the V4-6 realm to give it a burn. It's difficulties yield to good beta and core tension. Try any toe/heel hooking possibilities on every move if you're finding it too thuggy.

This has some of the most pleasing movement on any problem I've seen out there. Good luck! Feb 27, 2017
