Gone in 60 Seconds


Climbs a bulge via really bad holds. Sit/squat start with the two crimps at waist height. Move up R hand to a sloper/crimp, then match next to it on a sloper. Work your feet and make a hard move to a crimp (crux). Stand up on the crimps and topout.

Named for a hold that ripped off.

crux move is sooo frustrating.....anyone have any beta for it ?

My beta: Pull off ground and go right hand to bad crimp. Heel hook left arete, pull hips in, bring left hand up to sloper. Delicate foot move to get right foot on a higher nub close to left arete (back-step-ish). Sag a little and lunge for the high edge w/ right hand, keeping as much tension as possible so right foot doesn't cut. Swing/hop right foot up high, rock up on that foot, and top out.

This might be better for taller climbers (I'm just under 5'11").

Thanks a lot I would never have thought of that beta. I was just trying to go to the crimp with my right foot high directly underneath me. When you do that rightfoot backstep to go to the crimp is the left foot still heelhooked on the left arete?

Yeah, I think I keep the heel, but it might come off when I hit the edge.

That left heel is money for getting the left hand match on the slopey shelf. I'm not quite sure what to do after that, though. I was trying to crank down on my heel and stand up and slap the left side of the bulge on top but that didn't work and the heel only stays like 1/5 times.

Anyone know where I can find some video of this problem?

This thing stumped me for a while. A very bad heal hook and hard crux move shut me down for well over an hour. Footage of this problem starts at 4:06 if you wanna see what I did.

Nice video, Troy. Lots of great sends in there.

Just as a heads up, you started a couple of moves in on 'Gun Show'. It starts with the left hand to the left, next to the tree and the right hand on the left undercling. Making these moves and getting set up correctly for the dyno is definitely part of the difficulty. You're obviously strong enough to do it from the correct starting holds, but just wanted to point it out so other people don't start in the wrong place.

Thanks Christian. Your Pawtuckaway Project videos inspired me to make a few of my own and I know you know the area much better than I do. That being said I went back with Ian and got another clip of gun show and got it done the right way. Adding that heel hook definitely makes the route harder and better so thanks for the heads up.

This is a short but sweet problem perfect for trying while your friend works Hobbit Hole or Bolt on Top, very fun movement. Just in FYI, the far right side of the sloper rail broke. It used to be a decent slopey edge, but now it's a heinous sloper. This shouldn't affect the grade much, but will certainly complicate the beta.
