BETA PHOTO: First three moves

Description 

The most popular problem in the area.

This variation makes use of a few pockets to go straight up after the testicle, requiring more strength.

Beta:
Start on obvious, large rocks to the right and behind the testicle. Match on the testicle, using its good holds on the rear (flat side). Right hand to small 2 finger pocket above testicle. Climb up using the lip to get to the large pocket, cross, and finish on a bigger lip.

Crux:
The crux varies depending on height/reach, but it's usually getting to the large pocket or jumping for the end.

Other:

  • The back wall is fragile/crumbly but should not pose an issue.

  • Having extra reach and height will be beneficial on this variation.

  • Topping out here is dangerous, not recommended.

  • The grade is highly debated

Location 

~200 feet forward on the climbers trail. When getting on the trail it will be directly ahead of you, but will be on your left once you follow it.

Protection 

1-2 pad(s) and spotter. The large pocket is known to have spiders. Down climb is challenging.
