Getting to the hard part


Start with your hands on the obvious crack thing in front of you. Your left foot can go in the little divet by your shins. Pull up and move your right hand up one notch in the crack thing. You can kind of paste your right foot against the wall and move your left hand to the top of the crack thing. Move your right hand up next to your left and paste your left foot on the wall to your left. You can kind of stand up and put your right foot in the crack. At this point, your hands don't have too much to grab. You can take a huge step and get your foot where your hands just were and push up. You're done. Called the nut buster because I've been trying this climb ever since I got into climbing (which wasn't that long ago) and I still can't do it. My brother is the only one I've seen do it


I describe how to get there in the area description. You can get down by hopping to the boulder just behind the one you're climbing.
