Natalie Larson stretched up to the holds

Description 

This is a technical climb, very fingery, footing on small edges, crux happens as the hand holds shift to the left and footing is still below the edge and right. As you come over the ledge your footing is all smearing for the push over the top. Bring a good partner that you trust as there is negligible spots on the talus below for pads, safety is 100% reliant on your spotter.

Location 

Route is on the Front far right of the boulder. Start on the pointy rock just below the corner, with your spotter close behind, the first move is a big step up and then your committed, follow the corner up to the ledge, on your left will be you last solid foot hold below the ledge, pull yourself over and go for the hand hold on the left, feet are smearing as you make the last couple moves over the top.

Protection 

Good spotter, Pads
