Yellow line is the basic route...


Start as for Pound Crack but after one move exit the crack to the right working holds under the bulge. This is very scary because your body is horizontal for a number of moves, and at this point you are about eight to ten feet off the ground. The hard moves end when you reach over the bulge, to a jug. I personally haven't been on this route but I know several people who have and been there when they worked on it, for this route core strength is a must, along with strong fingers.


Start as for Pound Crack, and walk off the back.

This is my favorite of the harder problems at the Pound. All the holds are pretty good, but they don't feel that way because of the positions you end up in. Good footwork and core strength required, plus you've got to go for it a little off the deck.

This climb is so awesome, muscley movement on a gaston and undercling leads to two huge moves to good holds a bit off the deck. It doesn't even quite feel like a variation due to the block used for feet at the beginning. Definitely underrated imo and should get more attention!

Love the gaston and the undercling on this thing. This really is one of the best boulder problems at The Pound. Footage of this climb begins at 0:33
