Exit the right cave.


This problem goes straight up on jugs to some awesome slopers just right of Fritz's Bulge. It has a scary crux up high, but the fall is pretty safe, even with the other side of the corridor pretty close. I've fallen on the crux plenty of times with no injury, get a good spot though!


A couple feet to the right of Fritz's Bulge, six-ten feet to the left of Panic in the Streets, right in the corridor.


Couple of pads, a good spot

Seeing this pop up on my Mountain Project homepage as a classic makes me happy. Just sayin', there were good times involved here.

When we originally did this we weren't sure if we'd hit the back wall on a fall. Thus the experiment. Eventually someone did fall off, and it was a perfect landing, but the potential still gives me pause when I haven't done it in a while.
