Kretchmar's Mantle V4 6B PG13  South Dakota : The Needles Of Rushmore : ... : Kretchmar Boulder
Start as low as you can on a few good holds in the center of the overhang. Move up one move and then cut out right to the lip. Throw for the lip (which is pretty good hold actually). Now move your weight and throw a heel hook out to that same spot and move your right hand up the lip towards the peak of the bulge. Make a desperate HARD mantle up and over. THE CRUX IS THE MANTLE!...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Dakota
