Bad Ladder


Stand start on two crimps, one directly on the arete and the other to the right. Pull on and move up to a jug on the arete, then top out up and left. The top out is thin and tall but all there.


On the road side of the Barn Door Boulder, 2-4 feet right of Crimp Ladder.


Pad and spotter.

I couldn't reach both starting crimps from the ground, because I'm kinda short (5'7"), so started with the right crimp and a left foot out wide to pull up and reach the left crimp, felt easy for v3 as I got it first try.

I agree about this being soft. also i think it is more fun to top this out up and right using a good pocket and jugs but it does up the difficulty a bit, making it a solid V3.

Good problem! Fun big moves on edges to a topout that's harder than it looks.
