Ian, first move.


Start low and left at a block jug feature around chest height! Left hand up to hold on arete and bust a move out right to a side pull/rail feature. Work out the feature to top out boulder. Beware of top out its not bad but the you have the potential to fall in the pit on the backside of the boulder far out of reach of pads and spotters!


The entrance to the pit?


2-4 Pads

For me, this was much easier than baby crane. Heady topout. Even though I gave it 2 stars, this problem was a ton of fun. Just kinda crushes your nuts in the beginning if your not careful.

Fun problem. Seemed a notch below the standard V4s in the park though.
