The bulletproof line!


Start as for Not The Clapper on the right side of the face. Climb up and slightly left using good holds to reach a sloping rail feature. Throw up a heel hook and move further left to a small micro-crimp rail. Adjust the heelhook and go up to the sloping lip. open hand it or find another small edge to bite down on and go up left hand to another sloper on the lip, there is a small mono-digit divot that is useful. from here make a desperate throw with the left hand to a shallow dish and throw a foot over and mantel. The holds on the top out of Not the Clapper are off. An eliminate, and very difficult. An old school classic.


on the Clapper boulder. Start on the right side of the rock and follow the rail up and left above the blank section. Then top out.

Started working on this variation after getting shutdown on Standing Ovation and I actually liked this climb alot. Very precise moves to cool holds. I think the way I sent it is okay even though I ended up going back right to topout I probably should have stayed left but it definitely doesn't effect the grade.

The big slot/jug over the lip on Not the Clapper is off for the whole line, even for the top out. Yes, it's contrived. Yes, it's hard. This route description isn't correct here.
