Description 

Soft for the grade but a kick ass line nonetheless. Take the grade and run!

On the right blade of the Rock House Boulder formation, this problem sit starts at the base of the left low arete.

Find Cherokee Dihedral, and this is at the bottom of the arete to the right of that.

Sit start matched on the thin crimp rail flake. Please dont pull out on it, only down. If you think your too heavy for the flake, you probably are...

Place your feet on the nonexistent foot holds, and power to the right to gain the crescent crimp. use more phantom feet to gain another crimp above.

Be sure to check out the problem description on GHSP Bouldering! graysonhighlandsbouldering.com...

From crimps, toss up for the next humongous ledge. from the ledge, climb into Cherokee Dihedral for the same top out.

Remember... Be mindful of the flake...

Location
