Start sitting with left hand on good crimp, right hand in or around the crack. Move up on crimps and incuts to a small pinch. Dyno/deadpoint out right to the jug. Top out up and left.


Starts at the crack in the middle/right of the front face.


Pads.. 3-4 is nice and a spotter

This is a really good problem. I was never able to link it though.
I had not realize Ryan had the FA. Really strong kid BITD.

That was according to Paul Baird's notes. Maybe Joe can confirm it.

It was either Ryan or Pete. I think Pete picked out the line and Ryan sent it (which was what usually happened).

I would have thought so too since it is kind of an obvious line. I will shoot Whitey an e-mail to see if he has an opinion. I might not hear back form him until after his road trip though (Cochise, lucky guy!).

While you are at it, tell him I need him to come down to Mt. Tom when he gets a chance, and retell me about the old routes so they can get recorded.

Hated this route for 3 years, after finally getting it I think its one of the best problems at the woods!

I agree this is a LW classic. It's contrived, but who cares? It's just a total blast and a must-do for visiting out-of-towners.
