BETA PHOTO: The Negative climbs up the faint arch to the left ...


Start right of a bush, at the bottom of the arch feature. Move out right to hold under mini-roof, then up. There is a cool vertical slash on the upper face that makes for a great hold if you get the body position correct. Loads of great feet on this one so there goes that excuse.


A split boulder located uphill and west(right) of the upper boulders, just before you reach the Gunfighter boulder. This problem is between the two halves on the right side.


Due to the slanting boulder behind you it's pretty easy to just step backwards if you cant do a move; conversly you can start just about anywhere on the problem by starting from the slab behind. This also means that if you just plant a pad on the slope it will probably just turn into a sled when you stand on it. Placing one pad at the bottom and another on the slab should do fine.
