Sticking the big move to the rad pinch.


A powerful compression line up the corner of the boulder. Sit start with your right hand in a thin seam and left hand on a sloping edge. Make a hard pull off the ground and slap left hand up to a decent slot. Find your feet and make one last desperate throw to a rad pinch. Continue to the top and finish with a less than straight forward topout. Great movement with really unique holds.

The first move might actually take away from the line and starting one move in felt around V5.

Worth trying if you're in the area.


Just to the right of Stainless Steel. Climbs the corner of the boulder.


A pad or two to cover the rock behind you.

Don't be turned away by the first move. Finding the right body position and feet that work for you is the hardest part. I thought it was just as fun as Stainless Steel. Would be 3 stars if the left start hold was a little better and the landing was flat.
