Hitting the big first move.

Description 

On the same boulder as the Huecoland problem, look for a low right hand crimp and a marginal left hand. Go up using compression and some classic pine mountain slopers. Foot trickery abounds!

Location 

20 feet to the left of the Huecoland problem, just down the hill from Sock Hop and the Happy Hunting Grounds.

Protection 

Lowball. Pads are always nice though.

I always loved this problem.

It's a little devious with the heel hook, but the slopers get MUCH easier if it's cold out. Decently difficult regardless.

Fairly certain the FA was Steve Edwards, since I think I was there, but he'd have to confirm that one.

It's a great one. Just enough burl to make you want to forget to breathe.
