Adam pulling on a quality pocket.


A great balancy top out on the left side of Extension Boulder, only one easy line is further left. Not as scary or high as the West Face, but more technical. Start on the good layback at chest height (or the edges at waist height to add some more punch). Don't miss the shallow two finger pocket or any useful edges. The delicate body twist near the top is not to be missed. Careful of loose rocks just back from the mantel topout.


A pad and spotter is nice.
