Moving up Meat Substitute


Harder than it looks, this tricky problem tackles the arete just left of a prominent chimney. Tough for the grade.


Left of Thingamajig.


Pad, spotter

The crux is at the top, and you'll want more than your mind to land on, unless of course you keep that in your butt.

Once you get the beta it is V2. At least in J-tree it is. Little grainy up top but very fun problem.

Tricky for V2, felt harder than both Undertow and Crankcase which come in a grade harder. Excellent problem regardless.

A friend fractured his tallus bone slipping off of this thing unexpectedly, a pad is probably useful here.
