Different angle of me on Throng


In comparison to most of the problems in Devil's Den, this one is a lowball. It climbs up an overhanging triangular shaped face with two aretes and is a good way to ease into the grade. Sit start with left hand on a blocky feature and right hand on the right arete. Pull up and heel hook with your right foot to bump your hand up the arete. Bump your left hand up to the next sidepull block and either make a lot of little moves or one big move to gain the jug on the arete up and left. A dropknee may be helpful. Follow the arete to topout in the ferns.

Occasionally a lagoon of sorts forms beneath the problem.


This problem is on a smaller boulder between the trail and the Dust Boulder. Somewhat hard to miss seeing as how it's the closest problem to the trail and usually chalked.

I think is problem is under-rated. yes it is a low ball and not overly picture friendly but the movements are really fun. I do agree if it was 10 feet taller it would be a classic, but dont let this problems size steer you away from it, it is cool.

Really fun! Probably a V3(?) if you start with your right hand on the upper arete hold, that first move is rough.

Brendan it was fun climbing this with you yesterday, man. Here's to hoping that pulley tendon gets better fast!

A fun route - this or the professsor is an easy way to ease into v5.
