(If I'm wrong about any part of this, somebody please let me know!)

The original problem was a slight variation of the version now, the reason being that a hold broke off. Either way, this problem is really fun. Start matched on a horizontal jug, good crimp on the ceiling, then big move out to slopers on the lip of the roof--throw a heel, hit a slopey crimp to stop the swing w/ your left hand then mantle. Crux is hitting the slopey crimp.


Middle of the lost roof boulder, the easy V2 problem on the left is, well I don't know if there is a name for the problem as I haven't found it documented in any published guide, nor has anyone ever given a name to it, so I call it "Lost Roof Jr."


WATCH THE SWING, and rolling down the hill. A couple of pads and a couple of spotters: Your landing area is determined by how far off you swing on the crux move.
