  • Description 

    A strong contender for the best V2 in Colorado. Start low and left on a big jug and traverse right on cool slopey holds before gaining the upper ledge system via flat edges and a sneaky sidepull. When you hit the rail about 2/3 up the wall, continue right and try not to get any 'creme fraiche' on the boulder when you do the joyous rose move on jugs. Top out on more jugs up and right. The stone is perfect throughout.

    Fucking money.

    Protection 

    A few pads. It has a pretty good landing.

    I believe I made the first barefoot ascent of this thing on the sleaver last summer, good times, sharp feet.
