Description

Probably should have been the first line done since it really is the direct line from the Stigmata sit start. Start sitting as for Stigmata with the big flake for your left, pop up right hand to the crimp rail. Instead of matching (as for Stigmata), fire left hand to a sharp potato chip, then bump again to good rail on The Last Sloper. Climb up and right using the faith sloper (say 3 Hail Mary's and an Our Father) to the same topout as The Last Sloper.

Location

Start under the obvious low roof, same as Stigmata. #2 on the beta photo.

Protection

Pads, landing is sloped so keeping pads in place is crucial.

I think that is Stigmata, which goes a bit right (which is the center of the boulder) of this line. Feb 28, 2017
Not sure exactly how he started compared to what you are doing but Andrew topped out the center line on this guy. Hidden gem of a boulder! Feb 28, 2017
