Crux move. BAM!

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


A brilliant boulder problem on the back side of the Plumbers Crack Boulder. Stays in the shade all day, and climbs some of the highest quality stone at Kraft.

Start with opposing side-pulls and a wide stem, make a hard move to a left hand pinch and then the crux move to a right facing ear. Finish up and right to an obvious jug at the top of the neighboring V5, top out via easy, albeit very highball terrain.

Although Slice N Dice is better known, it is a variation of 'Plunger' V9 which shares the same crux but takes it's own line straight to the top.

If the opposing sidepulls feel too gnarly (like they did when I tried it) you can stand start at the next set of crimps and it probably goes at about V6 with the same fun, airy finish and some cool high-stepping at the start.
