This powerful problem climbs the rounded corner of the boulder to the right of Sit Down and Be Counted.Start scrunching down with a good left hand scoop/sidepull and a good right hand sidepull. Then, do the improbable heel hook right next to your left hand (it sucks, but trust me, it's key). Reach up to a tiny crimp with your left, rearrange your feet and fall into the big, flat undercling in front of your face with your right hand. From there, reach left hand to a tiny slot/crimp and then throw up and over the lip to the jug. Easy as that. Hard for the grade.


Pad, spotter

was this repeated by either the CO or MN crews? Or anyone else? So far as I know, only Greg and I have gotten this thing. It is HARD to start. Great moves though.
