A true Lizard's Mouth highball classic. Committing, but no surprises. Just keep it together for the top-out.


In the Femme Fatale Zone. Ascends the NW facing side of the big mushroom shaped formation by Meilee.


More than one pad, depending on confidence.

Anyone have any info on the line to the left of Lord of the Flies? I gave it a try, pretty cool climbing, quite balancy.

Andy Patterson did it before the last bit of rain a few weeks ago.

He was calling it 'The Conch' (V8ish), finishes up LOTF at the jug.

Apparently there was a breakage down low on LOTF a while back. Trying it for the first time a few weekends ago, I had a hard time seeing any V0/1 climber getting off of the ground. The first 3 moves felt like technical V2/3 leading into V0 after you get established at the jug ~8 ft up. Definitely can't call the start V0 anymore.

The start on the crimps is a bit technical, but I when tried this guy again yesterday, the bottom moves didn't seem nearly as hard as the beginning of Panic (v3ish?).

anyways definitely one of my favorite climbs in SB and I wonder why it doesn't get more attention. Extremist has like triple the ticks of this guy!

Finally did the repeat, bottom moves are a lot crimpier than they used to be. Also the mantel onto the ledge is epic! Solid v2 in current condition
