Sit start on the flake below Kellog's.. Move right hand to a crimp and then use two decent crimps to bump your left hand out and up to eventually link up with Kellog's. The crux is getting to, and then past that second left hand crimp up higher.

  • *Watch out for the starting flake, it was wobbling last time I was there, but it was still usable

Per Ben Duba, the starting flake to this problem broke recently. Now, the logical sit start begins with a left hand pinch and a right hand crimp. Thi grade of this problem will likely need to be readjusted after a consensus is reached.


This is the sit start to Kellog's. It is just to the right of the beginning of the huge shelf.


A pad.

I believe this problem has broken, specifically the starting flake. Sit start on left pinch and right crimp are the only obvious starting holds now and does not feel v6. Can anyone confirm this?

I encountered a gentleman yesterday who has been climbing at HP for many years, and he pointed out that the start hold for this has broken.

I had never tried it with the original start, but the current problem definitely feels at least a full grade easier than Beached Whale.
