BETA PHOTO: Grease the Tracks


A decent addition for the grade at Hobo. The first half is fairly mediocre, though is worth the surprisingly steep V6ish boulder problem, showcasing unique dynamic movement and holds.

Begin with slab mantle, wander up to a precarious looking flake and scramble up the ramp system. A few interesting sloper moves in the rotten band get you to no-hands stance. Bear down and fire the headwall crux to a glorious finish.


Begins in the clearing below Lucky Streak, right of the ugly broken corner


10 bolts. Shoulder-length sling on bolts 2 and 4.
