Parker and the opening moves.


Climb straight up to the right leaning flake and lieback this using the good feet. Finish on a good hold and mantel over the top on somewhat slopey topout holds.


Just left of Turlock Eliminate and right of Silent Running. Located on the west face about 10' left of the stairway descent.


Crashpad / Spotter. Can be toproped with long anchor extension off fixed eye bolts on top.

Ya know, this one is kinda sequential, not that it can't be "corrected" but it's nice to work this problem without doing any foot switches and a couple of step thrus, at least I think so.
