Description

Formerly known as 'The Puddle Project'.

Start standing with the left hand on a small crimp in the obvious horizontal gash at 6 feet. Pull onto the wall and do a rising traverse rightwards following the line of weakness. This leads you to a stance on some smears at 6 feet with your right hand on a small sidepull, on the blunt arete feature. At this point angle leftwards to an assortment of holds at 14 feet. This section is the technical crux, involving some tiny holds for your feet and hands. Upon reaching these holds, move leftwards to what is probably the most difficult move physically. A few decent holds lead to the final crux, a tricky and committing move high off the deck to gain a decent crimp just below the top.

A proud and aesthetic line, with some very technical movement on high quality rock. Expect to burn through some shoe rubber as you figure this one out.

A more direct line seems like it might work, but it's going to involve some comp style skills or the ability to do a very improbable single leg squat. I spent some time on it, but couldn't quite put it together.

Location

Located about 40 feet to the left of 'Old English' on the same boulder. This is the obvious highball slab.

Protection

You'll want a decent number of pads for this one. The landing is flat, but it's pretty tall, with a tricky and committing section at the top. It also meanders a bit, so you need pads to cover a large area.
