  • Description 

    This problem begins way back in the cave scrunched up on a rock on two underclings. Work your way around the roof to (hopefully) a kneebar and then kick over to the slab (another boulder) and finish on that boulder. There is so much beta and so many different ways of doing this climb that I'm not going to include the beta for this one although I will say that there are up to 3 kneebars and the best beta deviates from Fred Nicole's original version that he graded V10 (and is still reflected in the Wilder book).


    This route is on the same bloc as Flower Power (and is actually the original albeit shorter version). From Glas Roof hike up the slabs and turn to your right at the top of the slab approach. The boulder is on your right and is a large roof.


    Two pads and a spotter. As well as a spotter for the spotter down in the whole where you can find a soft V8.
