BETA PHOTO: Rough line of Busy Child


Start on good horn hold on left side of the boulder (away from the road). Traverse right staying low (good high holds are off-route). Crux is getting around the corner while using the razor sidepull.

Seems to be lots of misinformation about how to do this problem. It is certainly contrived and really only V8 when done properly. The line in the photo roughly follows where the hands should be during the left to right traverse. These really are the lowest holds that can be used to get around the corner, which is the crux. Using any of the higher holds makes it way easer...
