Short and stout and fun with slopers. This problem is essentially a direct finish to the start of Hairway to Steven. Sit start with the right hand crimp sidepull and the smeared left foot. Power up to the slopers and match before making a big move up and left to a small sloper right of the crack. Get a foot up on the start hold and try like hell to stand up before running up the slab above. Fun!


Visible from the main trail, this climb is on the first cluster of boulders past the Body Grind cave. Shares a start with Hairway to Steven.

This problem is definitely harder than 'Hairway To Steven'. And due to the hump factor, not quite as good, in my opinion. Worth doing though.

I must have gotten lucky. I had a hump-free ascent.

Maybe I was just doing it wrong. Perhaps grunt is more accurate than hump. 'Try like hell to stand up' is how it felt.

Someone I shall not name ripped off the left hand starting crimp on this right after I climbed it, I did the first move afterwards pinching a spot on the arete, felt more core intensive and maybe a bit harder, there are also some usable sharp crimps further left. Not a bad little climb.

After reading the comments here, my only question was "There was a left hand starting crimp?" Where? I always started matched or just one-armed it to the slopers.
