Latching the first move on this fun problem.


A quick, five move problem that is both dynamic and shouldery, but the holds are friendly. Start standing with two cool pocket-like holds above your head, plant a foot on the large shelf and dyno up and left to a very specific spot on the faint arete. Plant a right foot on one of the small nubs and power out left again to the flat jug shelf. Match and finish up.


On the Rainforest/Valley Boulder, between Valley Girls and the Firecracker Arete. Downclimb using a tree to the left of the problem.
