Description Suggest change

Start laying on your back with your feet vice gripping either side of the overhanging rock.  Starting hands are shown in the photos, left hand pinching the arete and right hand on a sloping jug.  Be cautious to not dab, as this is the crux, and avoid the rocks on either side of the overhang, specifically the right one as it is easy to dab on.  Make your way up and out of the narrow cave and finish by topping out.  By the way, I'm only 5'6" and still had trouble not dabbing, so tall people be warned.

There are harder variations depending on how far in the cave you start.

Location Suggest change

The narrow cave in the middle of the main face of the Portal Area.

Protection Suggest change

A pad, however, it becomes much harder to not dab if using one.
