Description 

Oxiclaw is a morpho, one-move wonder that climbs a beautiful slab.

Swing stand start with a three-finger, left hand sidepull and a triangular, right hand bump (almost nothing). From there, find a decent edge for a foot, and pop up (my one foot definitely pushed off the ground) to the diagonal rail (crux). At that point, follow the rail out right to the lip and top it out.

The top out is dirty but solid from what I experienced. I trundled a fair amount of loose rock from the top, but there may still be some loose holds though.

Location 

This is on the North face of Kumite Boulder.

Protection 

A few pads, the landing is great though.
