Start sitting in a bit of a hole. I started with my left on the large pinch and my right below it on a crimp/edge. Piece together a way to the top and avoid hitting the boulder behind you. Trickier than it looks and surprisingly powerful.


This route is downhill and right of 'The Whip'. You cannot see this problem until you're basically on top of it.

I added this route because I tried it (and climbed it) for the first time today and found it surprisingly tricky, powerful and quite fun. Quite good for such a short line.

It's amazing how many lowballs there are at Round Pond. And even more amazing how much fun most of them are.

This is really a pretty cool little boulder problem. Very powerful. I think it is a solid v4 because it is significantly harder than, Bring the Ruckus, Cause for Commotion, Crimp Stand and Hobbit Hole, all of which are solid v3's.
