probably practicing poor heel hooking technique ¯...


Start off of a boulder right of Man Junk. Stick clip your rope high. Campus or try to find feet and pull from a crimp-rail to a crimp in the short digedral overhead. Reach past a crimp to a jug and paste your feet. Climp jugs to the right out the roof to the lip. Move slightly left at the lip and throw for a sloper then match and move right to the anchors.


Fixed gear on bolts.

For those who don't want to campus or dyno at the start, a foot jam can be had above the head in the crack. Pull up to the sidepull, drop the feet back to the right, and layback up in the dihedral to the jug and the ledge above.

Just to not alarm an unsupecting climber, there were no fixed anchors on 11-2-08, so jump off or bring gear to thread your rope.

More like an 11c. V2 start to an 11- bucket haul. Fun climbing on the flake.
