Description

Four hard moves all stacked on top of each other. Start standing with two underclings and make a hard pull off the ground and toss left hand up to a smooth pinch with a good thumb catch. From here set your feet up and make the crux throw to the giant gaston above. Finish up by matching the gaston and doing one last desperate move above the bulge to a crimp high above. A contender for one of the hardest boulder problems in Smuggler's Notch.

Location

Down the hill from Green Mountain Gringo on the Brewski Boulder.

Protection

2-3 pads.

It's up to you. I know the original line goes straight up and going left changes up the crux but keeps it at the same grade. It's still the same start and the same difficulty so I don't know if it really needs to be it's own problem but I agree that it is a completely different climb that way. The good thing is that they are both hard. Aug 28, 2017
I think the Bryce Viola variation should be a separate climb. He matches the pinch and gets a high undercling then does a deadpoint to a sidepull out left. Still V11. White Dwarf left or give it it's own name? The stand start to the left version which I posted is also really fun. Aug 27, 2017
