Description

A rarely done line that people walk by all the time. Start sitting matched on the obvious incut crimp down and left from the stand start and make powerful moves off of slopey seams to get into the stand start. Although this only adds 5 or 6 moves into the stand start, they are powerful moves that will get you pumped out quickly making the stand start an even bigger challenge.

A somewhat overlooked line that I thought was worth posting.

Location

From Round Pond to Boulder Natural this problem is on the left side of the trail with the unique seam going up most of the boulder.

Protection

3 or 4 pads

Really enjoyed the process of working this problem. The moves are unlike anything else I have done and the rock quality is really good as well. From the sit start into the stand start felt around V7ish for me and from there I blew the stand section several times before being able to link it. So V7 into V7. Not sure what the climber math is for that but I thought it felt closer to V9 when I did it. youtube.com/watch?v=fnNrx2O… Apr 28, 2017
