About to pull the start


Start sitting with wide opposing sloper sidepulls. Pull off the ground with some difficulty and pop to the incut pocket. Head up and left to the arete and top out.
Difficult to find the proper starting position, but great fun once you do.


On the Dan's Problem Boulder. Starts down and left of the finish to Leviathan Hunting.

I tried this problem today starting off the two wide opposing sidepulls, and I couldn't figure out how to pull off the ground. I can usually figure out low strange starts but this felt impossible. Possibly foothold breakage? Maybe I was doing it wrong. Anyway, I think this problem should now start on the left hand incut pocket, and the right hand sloping sidepull. Probably around V3.

The crux has always been getting your butt off the pad, and this is one of the few climbs I came across in SB where being shorter is an advantage. But hey, haven't been up to this climb in a few years, so a broken foot is VERY likely.

As to starting higher, climbing is a choose your own adventure sport. Do as you will, but most importantly, have fun!
