Slash And Burn Boulder

Description 

Start on small edges and move up to a higher rail with better crimps. Reach right for a huge right facing sidepull and slap out left around the bulge. Shimmy up through some slopers to top out.
Considered a classic!

Location 

To the right of tennis shoe mantle.

Protection 

pads

Ah ha. Proof that I can (or could) climb v5. :) I remember that day well. I had just climbed Whipping Boy on Whitesides the day before. Pascal Robert, Kris Kline and I decided to go bouldering that day. KK climbed a nice one (maybe v2/3) to the top just left of 'my' problem and Pascal almost sent a much harder problem just to the right. He came back the next weekend and it went down. It must have been close to V8. This was before anyone was manufacturing crash pads, but I had a very small one out of an old sleeping pad. Good spotting was key.

Super fun problem with an exciting top out! I really dig it.
