Start low with your left hand in the deep pocket in the middle of the right hand corridor wall. Once on the rock move right to a good inverted pocket, from this pocket move up to gain a collection of small crimps on featured rock. Now move rightwards using poor feet and powerful fingery pulls all the while aiming for the huge jug over to the right.

With the jug at hand, don't pull too hard 'cause it is a bit hollow sounding, move more easily up the rounded arete to the top of the boulder.

Nice movement, combining powerful fingery climbing with deft footwork.


Located on the right side of the corridor between The Crippler Boulder and Hawkins Boulder.

Listed as broken in the Bishop bouldering guide. In its current form the problem climbs nicely and is solid at the V6 grade. Definitely a few grades harder than the other Crippler problems.
