The middle of the slab


Start same as crimpin ain't easy. Grain decent crimp in left and match. High feet lead you to a big left hand throw to bad sloping crimp thing. For balance Gaston on poor sloper under your left hand. Bring left foot up to good edge and the Gaston with right hand again to decent crimp. Throw your right foot over the bulge and try to find good feet. Drop left foot and bump left hand up above your right hand to another poor crimp. Reach way out to poor sloping seem with right and compress your way up to a scary stand. At this point you have to smear with hands and feet and find your way up the tall slab. Best problem in the area so far!


Variation to crimpin ain't easy. Same corner to the left of magnetic arete.


4+ pads. I did it with 2 trifold metolious pads but some of the dead logs that make the fall dangerous weren't covered. Suck it up and go for it!
