Moving through the second hold into the crux of th...

Description 

Starting from the large platform (on the left-hand side of the ocean-side of the largest boulder) The crux of this problem is the third move reaching for a weak grip on a sharp jug. There are strong feet at the beginning to carry the awkward hands and gravity works to your advantage once you've made the move. It's a rough game of finding a deep enough wrinkle to push your toe into for most of the traverse. It won't be much more than a warmup for a good climber, but for a mid-range beginner, it might eat up an hour or more of good fun.

Location 

Starting at the ocean side of the huge chimney between the largest and smallest boulders. You can't miss it...really.

Protection 

Lay a pad on the boulder behind you (the other side of the lil' chimney.) It'll be three feet behind you and trust me that's enough space to crack your head real nicely.
