This problem is located around the back of the South Seas along the left side of the trail to Baldy. Extremely easy to find and only five minutes from the car. If you come to a T in the trail you have gone to far.


Very good problem. Start low matched on a hidden under-cling. Do a few relatively easy moves up and left then reach right to the arete. Now switch gears for the next V8/9 sequence which involves an initial jump high step (this move caders to short folks like myself). Once that's over another V6 sequence awaits which finishes with a difficult cross through. A good rest with both feet in the large scoop is then followed by much easier climbing to a perfect jug on top (you don't really need to grab it but you should because it's there). Traverse up and right between the two cliffs to descend. Hard for the grade.


A few crash pads.

This problem looks amazing! Has anyone repeated it? Where exactly is it? I'm coming back over christmas. I'm completely out of shape (I'm attempting to address this issue), but I would love to try it.

It has not been repeated yet but that's probably because nobody get's on it. It's extremely easy to find. When you come around the 100 degree bend that marks the exit of the South Seas (on the trail that leads to Baldy) look to your left and you will see it. Althought it looks tall the landing is really good. You should also check out a few other problems including Dan Dewell's problems Organ Donor, Skypager, and Torso Fritter. Kiss My Grits, gNar gNar Black Sheep, Darkness Turns To Light, and The Duchess (non of which have been repeated) are some problems I put up that you should most definitely get on.

Hey Josh. Yeah, I can't wait to try the new problems at Baldy. Torso Fritter is actually a sit-start that was added (unknowingly) to my problem called Open Wide, v5. Dan and I have already talked about it. Funny how you think you're doing something new....
Organ Donor looks incredible too. That's not at Baldy proper, is it? I think I know where your new problems are at. They look really good too. I want to climb everything....

Don't think I am the Chris you are referring to Josh :), but we looked at this last year, amazing looking problem. You're right, we should give this some goes this year. Hopefully it's not too hot in late June this year up there.
