This challenging problem climbs a rounded buttress on sloping holds and palm-intensive slaps and is tricky for the grade, especially if the weather is warm.

Starting from a good right-hand sidepull and left-hand sloper work your feet up to some good edges as you slap your way up rounded holds to some better holds near the top. This problem is best done on cooler days, as it's considerably harder when the temps are high.


Located just northwest of the crack and arete problems near a secluded picnic table.
