Description 

Might be the hardest slab at Lincoln Woods. Climb the slab to the right of Heart of Glass following the left side of the slab. Was originally done with a multiple pad stack, I think Dave Graham may have done it off of one pad.

Location 

Just right of Heart of Glass, #3 on the beta topo

Nice job ! I remember trying this one with a "push" start..still couldn't do it.

I think I tried it from like a six pad start and couldn't do it. Not sure how few pads were finally used to send it but I remember Lee kept working on it with less and less pads.

Ha! I remember trying this and wondering how he started. I though if I could just get off the ground it didn't look too bad. I'll have to go back and check if I was dreaming. If john couldn't do it, I probably was.

This climb is really cool. The rock quality is outstanding and the holds are really unique.

Unfortunately, the crux move is pulling off the ground and you need to stack pads to reach the starting holds, so the difficulty can be noticeably altered by how many pads you stack. But, how few pads you can do it with depends greatly on your height and wingspan. I did it with the fewest number that I could use and still BARELY reach the starting holds. I was incredibly spanned out, standing on my tip toes, and I had to turn my head so that I could be completely flush against the rock.

For me, probably somewhere in the v7+/8- range. I'll say soft v8. Anyhow, it's too bad about the weird stacking pads bit because the rock on this climb is to die for and representative of the best rock that LW can offer. If you didn't have to do the stacked pad start, I would give this 3 or 4 stars easily.

For clarification, the starting holds are the high left hand sloper and whatever sidepull out right you can reach. I used the lower slot sidepull because that's all I could reach.
