  • Description 

    Great movement on solid edges on a steep wall. Start with your right hand on a good sloping crimp, your left hand on an undercling, and paste your right foot on the best thing you can find. Establish on the wall, stab left, stab right, and power straight up from there. The first three moves are the crux, but the mantel is wide-open, and you can feel the gaping maw below. Be precise with the mantel, keep your breathing under control, and you should be fine.

    Location 

    30 feet right of Dangle, on the gigantic Ruminator boulder. Recognize it by the steep crimps on a hollowed out scoop with a pretty freaky landing.

    Protection 

    4 pads and 3 spotters worked really well for me, but there still felt like significant risk of flying into the pit below. So yeah, I'm not sure how to protect this boulder so that the topout isn't quite so committing. I wore a chalk bag so that I could chalk my right hand for the mantel.
