Le Don, V8.

Description 

Squat start on good LH crimp and a white RH incut on the crazy compression feature. Climb up and left using crimps and sidepulls, then huck for the sloper lip, and top out. This is the best line at the Widowmakers.

Starting on the lowest holds (LH on a small notch and RH on a bad sloper) adds 3 hard moves into Le Don and is called Don Quixote, V9, FA: Sam Rothstein.

Location 

It is on the large and obvious boulder about 50 yards up and to the right from the Undergun Boulder. This is large white arete that can be seen from lower in the talus. This boulder is located in the center of the French area.

Protection 

3 pads.

Best V8 in the canyon in my opinion. Great movement, rock quality, and overall aesthetic make this problem one that should not be missed!
