Standing up from the sit start.


Sit/squat start with a small crimp for your right hand and a slopey sidepull for your left hand. Pulling off the ground is hard and you have tiny feet. Stand up and make a desperate move with your right hand up into the slopey undercling. Then adjust feet and throw left hand up to the good crimp above. (At this point you are at the starting holds of The Hug)You can now get a high left foot and make a committing dyno move to the lip. The top is fairly flat and you can make a relatively easy topout at this point.


If you are staring at Up in Smoke. It's the boulder directly to the left of it.


A spotter and 2 pads.

Hard to believe I've been trying this off and on since Christmas. Finally took it down though. Thanks for the support Ian. Felt good to hit the lip on this one.
