Steve on "Half Nelson"


This line is super addictive and waaaaay more fun than it appears at first glance. More of a "can you do it" party trick than an actual boulder problem.

At the front face towards the left, look way down at the base of the boulder. Follow the low edge and where the boulder meets the ground is where you will want to start. The large flad ledge below is used as a foot, and any combination of tiny chips and ripples will be key for a right starting foot.

Inspect the featureless face for any holds that can be used for hands. As a hint, the tiny two finger chip high and left may help, and a high right hand pinch can be nice to use as well. Also multiple thin fingertip crimps are found low and right as well.

This is a one move wonder... Just pull on, establish, and fire to the top. good luck.
