Luke Childers making the F.A. of "Thrust Firs...


It's a S.D.S.. Start with both hands on two small crimps/fakes. Heel hook and but horizontally straight up to a bad sloper. Pull a crazy toe hook and bring up your left had to another bad sloper (crux) and then toss to the final sloping jug form which you must gravel your way to standing on the top of the block!! A short, small burly line that is really fun. Worth the stop if you are either at the Slabs area and heading up to the Block Heads or if you are at the Block Heads and are headed down to the Slabs area. Check it.


Located up hill and east of the high ball slabs. If you were walking up to the Block Heads keep looking to your left just after the lager slabs and you will see this nook of a problem hiding next to a nice little tree.
