Raspberry the bomber heel hook

Description 

This somewhat unique problem starts sitting under a low roof with hands matched on a good undercling. Make a long reach from the undercling to a huge bucket, match again and then grab one more decent hold before confronting the crux slopers on your way to some jugs and the end of the difficulties.

The brief crux consists of a few very sloping pulls and is probably best done when temperatures are cooler to ensure success.

Location 

Backside (Southeast corner) of the boulder.

Protection 

pads, a spotter is nice at the crux

Better to skip the nasty sloper. Match on the last good hold on the left then chuck for the holds up and left.

I used all the holds. Taller folk can definitely chuck for the finish jug but it is still hard that way too. It was also pretty hot this weekend and still went okay. Really GOOD
