Start on the low jug on the right of the wall. Work your way through awesome roof moves on good holds until the holds run out. Top out using a knob and a side pull rail. Either downclimb the easy terrain next to the tree, or walk off (about 150 feet) to the right.

For full value, don't use any holds above the lip. This involves a large, nearly horizontal dyno to a sharp jug. This variation bumps the grade up a couple on the V scale. You have to try this!


If you just climbed Inward Particle (which you should because it is great), walk right along the wall you can see until you encounter The Troll Cave (maybe 40 feet). Alternately, if you are at the base of Inward Particle, walk around the tree to the right and you should see it.


A pad and someone to move it.

Shout out to whoever put the work in to build up the landing area below the finish. It pads sit sooooo much better now.

In my opinion, the low (V4?) version of this is one of the best problems in the park.
