Nothing Really Matters is a fun but contrived problem that utilizes the cool, red step-like holds to the right of Toxic Shock. There are many ways to top this out from the start, but I thought this was the most fun and difficult.


Start down and right of Toxic Shock on the arete. Use the arete for your right hand somewhat as an undercling and your right hand on a good, left-facing sidepull. From here, match, and move directly left into the red, blocky holds, and go straight up. For this problem, avoid any holds out right on the lip, and shoot for the giant horn jug above the red holds. Like I said, it is very contrived but fun.


Two pads.
