matt down low... this was my favorite part of the ...


A fun, short power problem that climbs a bottomless block. Sit start with both hands matched on a sloping jug rail on the bottom right corner. Heel hook next to your hands to pull on and dangle before making a move out to the edges, bump left hand again, then match. Rock up on the heel and around the arete to a crimp (crux) or the lip if you're long.

This problem is at 1:48


This boulder is a chunk of the Split Boulder, behind Halcyon and My Little Pony. If facing those problems, walk right about ten feet.

So do you start with your hands matched on the rail where his heel hook is in the picture?

Yep. Two hands and a heel where his heel is now to start, then move left to where his left hand is before reaching for the crimp as seen.

This climb definitely falls in the category of "Hmm, this doesn't look that hard..." (20 seconds later) "I'm an idiot."

Careful on this climb, I pulled my hamstring on it from the heel hook you use during the crux...

Make sure you warm up well and stretch before trying anything with an intense heel hook like this.

Also the FA was Brett Meyers.

There is a small, easily overlooked bulge to the right of the arete that can make this problem possible if you don't have the wingspan or power to reach the rail at the end. You can see Mike's hand on it in the 'BAM' picture. There isn't much surface area to pull on, but it's enough to let you shift your hips over your right foot before finishing.
