Description

Awesome rock with a cruxy last move make this one of the best V9s in the area and a must do if you are hitting up Emerald.

Start on the big rail (starting on the left end of the rail adds a few extra moves if you're into that), then power up some ill moves culminating with a throw to the lip.

Location

Instead of breaking left off the trail (i.e. Whispers, The Kind), break right, and head up the hill roughly 30 yards. The boulder is easily visible, almost paralleling the goliath Whispers Bloc on the other side of the trail.

Protection

Pads, and a snow landing helps.
