[Hide Comment] Loved this line! Short beta made it feel V6, 4 star climb regardless. 10/10 would recommend. Apr 13, 2017
[Hide Comment] I did a variation of this that starts by traversing in from the very right end of the boulder, around the corner. I also did a continuation of this traverse that stays low and goes around the far left corner (traverse the whole boulder!). At a point on the far left, you are only mm from the ground V8-9, 1994). This traverse has a section on the prow documented by Bob Horan. Apr 14, 2017

[Hide Comment] Using a toe for the right foot makes the start move harder. Heel is absolutely the key. Nov 28, 2017
