Just to the right of the starting jug of The Blot is a large left facing sidepull at about 6 feet. Grab this with your hands, pick some feet and toss for the quartz holds at the lip, then top out.

In the Kemple guide the topo for this route is miss labeled. After some discussion between myself and Christian Prellwitz this is how we both agreed the route actually climbed. If you have any info that contradicts this please let me know and I'll update the description


Start standing on the large sidepull just to the right of the starting jug of The Blot.


Pad and a spotter.

I added a photo to add some clarity as to the start of this problem. Take a look to make sure it looks okay.

Also, I would add that there's a good crimp out right of the starting flake that helps make the throw to the quartz lip easier. Beware of the rock behind you as falls do tend to go in that direction. A fun little climb.

This is an underrated climb that is quite fun, of the problems in this little courtyard I think this was the most fun.

Super fun, although it feels a little reach/height-dependent.
