Sloping, poor locks/crimps lead up the crack, on poor feet, to a powerful undercling move. Stand up to the lip. Celebration time!

See the first boulder ascent (probably):


The left-angling crack immediately left from the "cove" in the middle of the wall.


9 1/2 pads were used on the first boulder ascent. Top-rope rehearsed.

Nic O did the second boulder ascent of this line today (9/29/13). Cool grips and sequences on this rig. Should see more ascents!
