BETA PHOTO: Christian Prellwitz about to start 'Bert's Butt' (...


Start crouched with hands matched on the lowest undercling. Establish feet on the wall and bump to the next undercling. Match and make a difficult move (or series of moves) to get to the obvious, chalked jug. From the jug, move up and left to another large jug/shelf and then upwards to an easy top out.

It's hard to say what the crux move is. It seems different for different people. No matter what, it's a lot of powerful moves in a row. The move to the second good shelf can be a bit of a heartbreaker, especially on the flash burn, since it's not as straightforward as it seems. I won't spoil the fun of figuring it out!


This is located in the middle of the overhang on the west face of the boulder. Begin on the underclings deep in the back of the overhang.


A couple of pads are ideal.
