Love the opening sequence on this problem.

Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


Sit start below and to the left of the obvious crimp rail. Move right to an interesting pocket on the arete, then follow the arete to top out. Crimpy, technical, and fun!


On the steep underside of Asteroid Boulder uphill from the Impossible Problem.


Pad or two and a spotter. The slab behind is slippery, so watch out for that.

Shares the same start as Boomerang. FA was Mark Troub around 2003 (I believe)

i don't know why the impossible problem gets more stars than this...Just as good imo. Definitely worth trying if you're at smuggs.

A foot hold broke sometime in 2012 or 2013 at the start of this problem. Now requires a leg cut to switch your feet making the whole route slightly pumpier. I personally didn't find it much harder, but I've heard some of the locals are considering it V8 now.

This broke sometime in the last 2-3 weeks. The wiggly part of the arete jug has broken out. It left behind a much smaller, but still good hold and there is still plenty of room for the hand heel match. Might not affect the grade but I haven't tried it since then.

I sent this again yesterday. Didn't notice that it had broken. Fortunately, I think it stays at the same grade and the experience is no different!
