Eyeing up the last few moves.

Description 

Start on jugs, make a couple of powerful moves up to the big sloper (or the finger lock to the left) then move up past a couple of crimps to the sloper to make hte last clip before the anchors. Make the crux move out right to the flake then either dyno to the top or match on the flake and go up.

This climb is one of my hardest yet, took one day of work to figure out the moves (there are a million sucker holds) then got it as my first climb without a warmup the next day. I love this climb, no tendon busters but crimps and big powerful moves.

Location 

2nd route left to right on this boulder's overhanging section

Protection 

3 Bolts to anchors (why only one quick clip at anchor?)

Bouldery movement, tough sloper move down low. Use a drop knee to reach right to the flake on the final sequence.

Bouldering on a rope at its best. Shame it isn't any taller!
