Some seriously fun movement for the grade


Crawl on in and get comfortable, it's a bit cramped. Start with your feet facing out, hands on a large knob under the roof. A few moves resituate your hands and feet so you can turn around and stick your head out the front door. Good pockets beyond the first 3 ft of the face make for an easy finish. Try to only use the main boulder, not the ones to either side that it is wedged between.

Good creative footwork makes all the difference.


20 ft south of Lift Tower. The problem is on a large chockstone with the opening to the south. This is not the chockstone in the same gully as Gaper Gap and Goggle Tan (Smoke Shack is about 30-40 ft N of this)


Thick pad to start on is nice. Don't fall getting tricky with the feet without a pad.
