Description 

This problem continues the theme for this wall/boulder- technical slabby and vertical climbing!

Start standing around 5 feet to the right of the obvious crack that makes up 'Gabber's Route'. Choose starting holds from a couple of different options. (I went with the diagonal flake for my left hand and a high crimp/pocket for my right hand.) Head straight up via technical moves on an array of small crimps facing all sorts of directions. Near the top, the holds begin to run out. Stand delicately on some small feet to latch the distant, sloping lip and finish out easily.

This is a good test of crimp strength and slab climbing skills. A fun and worthwhile climb.

It should be noted that the crack at left is considered 'off' for this problem.

Location 

This climb is located on the Font Boulder, which is directly uphill of 'Chuckie's Torture'. It climbs the face to the right of 'Gabber's Route' and to the left of 'My Way'.

Protection 

A couple of pads are ideal.
