The cross-thru and lunge to the lip


Start with both hands on an undercling at chest height and establish your feet on the crystals. Move out right to a sharp sidepull, crimp the crystals, and slap the lip. Feels impossible until it feels doable… if that makes any sense.


On the Method boulder between Crystal Method and F**k The Method.


Landing is uneven, so a couple pads are best. Spotters help too.

I was really surprised that I had to lunge for the lip (after the crux), the feet really disappear on this thing.

Great description Julian. Your last sentence is a perfect summation of this climb.

Bizarre, but fun. And kinda cool when it comes together.
