Description 

This excellent and varied climb has a little bit of everything: hands, fingers, face, and even a fist!

Start at the bottom of a narrow corridor. The crux comes early. See the photos on this page for more beta on its location.

Location 

This climb is on the Northwest side of the formation. You can see it as you approach the formation, on its North East end. The climb starts at the bottom of a narrow corridor.

Protection 

Bolted anchors were installed on 9/25/14, allowing for a safe descent for this climb, the offwidths to the right, and 'Death by Hantavirus'.

Rumor has it that the offwidth cracks to the right of 'First World Problem' have been bouldered. First World Problem is only slightly taller than these neighboring offwidths. Maybe it deserves a ropeless ascent, but it looks scary.

Hmm… First World Problems....

This route really is a fun one. It truly has a little bit of everything. The area is a little tricky to get to and requires some bushwhacking but with enough foot traffic it should get better. Thanks, Evan Martin, for taking the time to clean this route!

I should also add that this route is very sequential. At first, it felt like 10a, but 9+ is more reasonable.
