Description

Stick clip the first bolt, do an interesting move to get off the ground and into a stance with jugs. Leave the stance and climb through high quality red pegmatite on a slight overhang. Enter a technical boulder problem with tiny directional crimps. Expect to crimp some 2-finger crystals. That said, the crux is probably the footwork: flexibility goes a long way. The movement is static and intricate: I did 13 hand moves in 20 feet. This gives way to nice positive crimping and a deceptively pumpy finish. Really cool crux and pretty rock. A possible detractor would be the sharpness of a couple of holds.

Location

On the first tier at the tall section of the joint. On the right side between Kid Gloves and Big Smoke. Goes through a distinctive red swath of rock, black streak to the left, green streak to the right.

Protection

5 bolts to 2 ring anchor

if you're into bouldery sport climbs I highly recommend this one. interesting move off the deck pulls you up to some jugs. compose yourself because it's the last chilling spot you'll have before the anchors up top. crank through some crimps, sidepulls and underclings.. big move up top to a good sidepull. really good stone and fun movement make this thing worth doing.

It's stood 13a in the guidebooks but felt soft for the grade, you decide. Jun 15, 2018
