Shootin' Blanks - V4 - Lower West Side 

Discovery of a shiny bolt 2/3 way up this 12 foot face made us realize we weren't the first to be out in this area, i imagine this went in before pads were cool.

This problem requires both power and finesse. Laying back on slaps and slopers, work up n right with friction only to a small but positive knob, from there it gets tricky requiring a short traverse out onto the roof before bringing the feet up left and mantling over.

This problem is in a cool spot just down from the big Broken Promises Boulder.


Located in the Lower west side.

Also here you will find another short but awesome smear-fest directly up the face of this boulder, we call this V5+ slab the Poker Face( FA: Sean Carlson) On this line the granite is blank, almost vert, and your moving basically on fingernails or just texture.


2 pads minimum and a spotter as a fall here could be disasterous.
