'Break Away' is located between 'the north park rock' and 'veiny.' About twenty feet south of 'just jugs' and 'fintastic.' It consists of a sit or suedo squat start. Then you 'fall' into a mono pocket, after that you reach up and over the bulge to a good flake. At this point you can match your hands (don't let your feet dap!). Then it's a matter of using the correct sequence of hands on the fins, so that you can get on top of the bulge (it's pretty pumpy). From there it's over another small ledge. I'm not sure on how to rate this problem but it felt V-1 ish. Any help would be appreciated. Have fun and bring tape!

Ive attempted Break Away, the mono hold is rediculously painful, definately a good problem to work on tho.

A few of use went back to this problem this spring and noticed that a few more bits and pieces had broken off. Hence the name "break away". We have also figured out a mantel to the top out. This problem is FUN! go try it!
