Cutting feet on the traverse.


Sit start in the narrow cave with your hands matched on a right facing blocky hold. Pick some feet and fire up to the large rail above. Surf the rail left for a few feet, before toping out via the obvious crimps.


In cave formed by two boulders in the entrance boulders fairly obvious, it's on your right as you walk into the Black Jack Boulders.


Pad and spotter.

There's a one-move sit start that goes at V10. Find a crimp and side-pull about in the middle of the cave, make a hard move to gain the rail, and top out as for Caver's.

One powerful move followed by jugs (more or less). But, outstanding rock quality and really friendly holds.

Where does this climb actually start? I've done it twice but I still don't know if I've been starting it wrong because it doesn't feel at all v5. I'm starting as far right in the cave on the big rail as I can. I think my right hand starts down on a sidepull thing initially. Any description other than just "start back in the cave" would help.

Hi Jake, sorry about the confusion, I updated the description to better describe the route. It sounds like you were starting one move in!
