Description

Starting on the same jug shelf as Widowmaker, climb right through some polished crimps, a powerful cut and a thin topout.

To me, this is one of the most frightening lowballs imaginable. The landing consists of a number of pointy & loose boulders on a very steep slope leading to a deep pit, also filled with and surrounded by rocks. Don't fall– if you feel like you are going to blow off of the first crimp with the heel-toe cam in place, just lower yourself onto the pads.

Location

Starts on the same juggy shelf as Widowmaker, but goes right.

Protection

2+ pads and spotters, if at all possible.
