crimpy side pull-esque crux hold


Obvious bulging face... Start on a good jug, go to a bad right hold, and a long powerful move up right to a good slot. Top out on a ledge 12' up and downclimb the easy crack to the right.


At the base of the cliffs near the end of downtown, just up the hill from the Twilight Zone alcove.


Pad and spotter

FA Bob Murray...
Probably 80-81?
We'd worked it a bunch with no luck.
Showed it to Bob, he hiked it first try and then looked at us like, what???

I think originally it was being called The Impossible Hole Problem.
something like that.
