Description

Sit start the incredible flake. Laybacking and smearing at changing angles to a spicy topout make this one of the best lines on the peninsula. The physical crux is probably coming off the sit, but the mental crux is a lot higher!

This climb was likely done as a stand-start toprope "back-in-day" and was probably given a 5.9+ grade. It is better if done as a boulder problem from the sit! It has been brought back to life.

Location

Ascend the obvious mondo flake.

Protection

A TR anchor can be built with some large cams (A #4, #3, and #2 C4s fit well, but a #6 might be best). Bouldering this climb with some safety may require multiple pads and a good spotter. The high crux is F-in' high.
