This problem tests your core strength. You're never more than four feet off the ground. Traverse right to left. Start off with a heel-hook with your right foot. Start matched on a good jug, move left for a crossover with your right hand.

V1 moves- but don't let this rating fool you. Pumpy, endurance, technique- all around spectacular problem.


Keep walking past Ozzy Boulder, on your left. Looks like a tiny cave.


Pad and your spotter to move it over the rocks below.

Yeah, I really think this problem is sandbagged--V2?

Does this problem include a top-out? If so...felt like V3.

Yep- go straight up at the left end of the lip. Lots of footwork.

Sandbagged- but not a V3....not by a long shot. Haha, I crack myself up sometimes.

I think this is the hardest 2 (in the guide book) i've ever sent.I would rate it a three. Clark Direct in the middle of this boulder is a 3 and it's essentially the same moves as only the ending of long shot. Don't let this problem get you down.

I think this is a solid V3. Or the most sandbagged V2! I love this problem. Great moves and pumpy. It's great if you are by yourself as long as you have two pads. Very fun, may be my favorite problem there!
