Nick on Pocket Rocket


Start sitting to the right of small roof at base of slab. Start with left hand on low jug and right on sloper, get a heel hook and move your right hand to a better hold. Adjust the heel hook, then go left hand to the crimp in the roof, then bump right hand to slopey dish. Adjust feet and hit the hidden pocket over the lip. Topout as for Improbability Theory. [Variation: Starts left of original sit with left hand on high small crimp underneath roof and right hand on good pinch undercling. Put left foot on good edge and right foot on small hold under roof Pull on and make hard right hand slap for slopey dish. Once you catch dish, readjust feet, move left hand to starting hold for stand problem and then finish as for stand problem.] Used to be V9ish until the start hold broke and became bigger.
