"A very awkward start leads to a crimper"...


Crux is second move. Good landing though.

Video here.


Southside (main side). Left most direct route on Pile Ups. Starts at large greasy hold (left hand) and goes straight up to the lip and tops out.

Good landing? I hurt myself here once, before crash pads came along, hurt so bad I almost fainted. I hobbled back to the car, drove to the Northridge ER and was told I had "jammed" my heel. Be sure to put a pad down there a slab of rock right beneath a thin layer of sand.

Crux hold broke a week or two ago. I'm guessing the grade is open for debate now.
