Description 

Soft V1 if you're tall, otherwise it's around a V6.

Starting just to the left of Bedal Juice, this is a short but stout little problem. Find the small two finger crimp (NOT the weird but tempting undercling!) and get that right foot on the flat section below.

Mantling with the left hand and hauling with the right, get the weight on the right foot to move the right hand to a high sloper then top out to finish. Smearing at the start with the left foot can help.

For a V2- variation, don't use the small rock for your left foot (just near the start of Sloan Groan) to stand on when starting.


  • NOTE: The FA was done in mountaineering boots, so future Sharmas are recommended to wear climbing shoes and may make use of a left foot, just down and to the left on the underside of the boulder.

Location 

Bedal Boulder (just to the left of The Post)

Protection 

None. Crash pad recommended.
