The desperate throw on Desperate Affair.


Unfortunately, we didn't take any good photos of this rock, so I'm going off faded memory here. I believe you start on decent feet and small hands, then have to move hands up to sheer sloper holds and crimps while feet get smeared up high. From there, it's a desperate throw for a weird gaston/crimp at the top with your right hand. Pick your right foot smear well, as you have to stand up on it to make the throw.

The delicate footwork and dynamic finish make this a very satisfying problem.


This slab is right of Steenar Shuffle and (I think) left of Swiss Mix. It climbs up to road level and has no weeds on top, so that should help ID it.


Pads, spotters.
