Opening move

Description 

Start sitting with both hands on a choice of edges on the obvious rail feature. Make a big deadpoint up and right to a crimp. Then use a unique shallow pocket and a few other holds to gain the lip of the boulder and a relatively easy finish.

A cool mix of power and technique with great movement.

This climb had apparently broken and been deemed unclimbable. Then it broke again and became climbable again. I never tried it previous to its current condition so I can't really comment too much on the history. However, in its current state, I found this to be an excellent climb and personally it's my favorite line on the wall. Originally graded v7. Felt somewhere in the v7/8 range to me.

Location 

This climb is located on the '45 To Life Wall', about 10-15 feet left of 'Fido'.

Protection 

A couple of pads are ideal.

Despite the first move being to a small broken crimp this line is really fun. I love the starting holds. Really unique climb. I also just did the V9 link up called Professor Booty so I figured I'd post this up as well. Definitely one of the better lines on the boulder.

A good little climb with quintessential movement, but sharp and short all the same. Worth doing, but definitely not a classic. Christian, you and I obviously have very different perspectives on Fido!
