Sam Edwards on the FA. Want to say this was 2002.


Start in the back of the overhang on thin pockets. Move up and left, under the prow and through a horrendous series of pockets, edges, and pinches. Finish by emerging on to the far side of the prow, making long & delicate reaches. Top it out, or walk off after the jug.


From the Central Happiness area, head up the canyon towards the Savannah boulder. From there, cut right, towards the east lip of the canyon. Look for the prominent overhanging prow just below the lip of the canyon. Goldfish is just behind this prow.


Pad. There's a rock in the fall zone at the end of the problem.
