Start by laybacking on a set of nice but thin crimps. Then crank left to a larger but still insecure sidepull. Move into a right hand gaston, and pull to a sloping textured lip. Spring up to a nice jug with your right.

From here, either continue right to finish with "Skyjacked" or began moving left to a layback crack system that is found just under a small overlap.


This is located on The Subterranean Wall left of "Skyjacked."


No less than two spotter and multiple pads!!! A high fall could be very serious!

Great line Luke! Great rock & cool moves, with an unfortunate landing. I think you mean "right hand gaston", yes?

Hey thanks Monomaniac,
I did mean a right hand gaston. I have now corrected the info. Thanks for noticing. And yea it's a cool line. I love this one.

This is really Bruce Lee. Best done as a sit start way off to the right. You can call it whatever you want, it's still one of the best around.
