Description

Do you have burly strength, good footwork, and extra skin? Then this is the testpiece for you!

Sit down start matched on a sloper undercling with a good right hand thumb-catch and bad footholds. Pull of the ground with difficulty and make a desperate move to a smooth, glassy, rubber polished gaston. Snag it and hop the right foot up and power into the fang undercling of the stand start. From here move the left hand up to some sharp but good holds and figure out how to get your two fingers into that pocket up high.

Terrible when the foot pops, but extremely satisfying to put down! Classic! Perhaps legendary?

Location

Just past the Acid Wash Area. The fang undercling is hard to miss.
