Climb the overhanging prow via non-existent slopers for the right hand and tiny crimpers for the left hand. The crux move is right in the middle involving a hard move falling into a left hand sidepull, but getting there seems ridiculous and leaving that spot is only slightly easier. After reaching the slot near at the top, move slightly right to top out on the Seul Avec-side on slopey dishes. This problems climbs as well as it looks. In my opinion it is one of the most awe-inspiring lines at Baldy.

Five stars. This thing is amazing! I stared at it for years thinking "just maybe". When I shared my vision with Greg he mocked me. I remember the first day that I got established on this thing. Greg freaked out then started working it. I'm so psyched that he eventually got it. This is a proud line. Great job Greg. Not only the hardest, but the prettiest and best! Glory!

Hey Christian. Yours is the 2nd comment I've heard about the top crimp breaking off. The first comment was a couple of years ago. I could be wrong, but I bet the original hold is still there (as it was after the 1st comment). The crimp that I used looked like a broken edge. You can see a scar where rock has broken off and the edge is bumpy and not very good to say the least.
