BETA PHOTO: poke the pocket 5.11 b


This short 3 bolter is more of a highball boulder problem, but not one most would want to try to solo. A powerful move to get off the ground leads to the obvious and positive pocket in which you must poke. If you don't poke this pocket you are not allowed to say you climbed this route. Some insecure crimps out left lead to a huge juggy finish and mantel. A great route for the sprouting .11 leader.


Just left(west) of the tree that you must squirm through to reach the east end of the crag. Look for the poked pocket.


3 bolts, open hanger anchors.
