  • Description 

    A Classic! Middle of steep face, start on jug and get high up to small crimp, establish and gun for the lip. Super fun problem with stretchy moves. Seen few accents.

    Phenom line. A sit down from the left, and a long sit down from the right could probably be done as well for even more fun.

    As it is, I think it's starts naturally from the sidepull crimp from a stand. Pretty rad. Could use a bit more brushing along the rail at the lip. I was on a night session on it tonight, and had a blast. I'll have to go back to stick that last move! JWilliams

    PS- At least two pads are preferable. Three might be the best with a sloping hillside just off the landing.

    I climbed the money V6-7 and a line left of it when I found this boulder. Did not do sit starts. I never brought anyone there, just told T. Kieck about it. I remember being bummed that there were not more jems like this in the area - one of the best problems in the state in my opinion.
