Ian Cotter Brown walks it.


A forced line, but good climbing. Starting left hand on the lip and right hand underneath climb out the fridge feature and top out at the end. Awesome and unique compression climbing.


Just below El parasol project by 10 feet and just uphill from Fat Raccoon boulder.


2-3 pads

yea, it's short and a bit contrived, but it has unique movement for devil's lake.

the sit start goes at v11 and is called drunchies (aka drunken munchies). ian put it up yesterday (11/02/13). start with right hand on starting right handhold for the fridge and left hand on small, sloping crimp in middle of the face. bump left hand to the left hand starting of the fridge. the move looks easy. it is not.
