Crazy Pete on Balancing Act.


Start on obvious rail and move straight up through a small left crimp and slopey right sidepulls. Extra points if you can sit on your heal and take both hands off.


In the caves, this is on the one semi-attached to Rupture (back and left when looking at Rupture).


Pads and spotters.

Tried this problem tonight for the first time. I've been hitting up MoSo after work all summer and the place has so many hidden gems. I have to mention for Balancing Act that at 5'8" with a +1 ape index I could not reach the first crimp on the face off the heel hook. No matter how high I started with the heel, or the right foot. I think this problem is V4 if you are 5'10" or taller. It's gonna take some work for me at my height, cause that first move is a serious reach. Beta anyone?

I really like this problem.... The stretch is very cool. Just hook, and maintain long enough until your body kind of unwinds, and BAM! the Crimp! Deserves more than 2-Stars! A Very Tasty (if easy) little arete problem with a sit start lies behind this one across the chamber.
