Description

One of the best lines I've ever climbed. Start with your left hand on a large jug and your right hand on a smaller jug. Bring your feet up, and away you go. Find the sequence to traverse the mid-section of the overhanging wall. Top-out in-between the two cracks in the top of the boulder (see the images).

(There is a chalked up hold, down low, that is about to break off. The problem goes without using it. I suggest skipping it. You can see the crack in it. It is very obvious).

You can also climb the top-out to this problem from the ground. Stand start with both hands on good holds and top-out. V2

Location

This is to the left of Should be Good. See the images.

It was well worth the walk out there just to see this one. There is great movement; it's pretty much perfect. Great setting on a bend in the river with a swimming hole. Nov 25, 2017

Be prepared to climb at the grade. This is a route to be taken seriously, and it makes the send all the sweeter. Apr 21, 2018
