Metallic climbs the chalked holds to the left of t...


Metallic climbs the line of thin, slopey crimps just left of Zigzag Crack. Start with your hands on two crimps at about the seven foot mark. This is a perfect problem for a cold day because it's all about whatever friction you can get from the raspy starting holds. Place a foot on and toss to better holds. After establishing on the next set of crimps, the problem eases in difficulty. Top out just to the left of Zigzag in a little groove.


Pads and some extra skin for the raspy crimps.

Short, but sweet. A nice little test of finger strength (and conditions!). The corner/top out needs a little cleaning. I plan on doing so sometime soon.

A sit start looks like it would go and be real hard.
