BETA PHOTO: The start holds


Looking for a quick tick? Here's a short problem with a one move crux. Sit start left of The Cooper Problem with a small right hand crimp and a bad left hand on the faint arete. Using the good left foot, pull hard and slap up to a decent slopey hold. Don't blow it and finish up the face to the top.


On the smaller of the two Barnyard Boulders, this climbs the short arete/face left of The Cooper Problem. Downclimb off the back of the boulder.

Is the starting right hand for this route the same hold as the starting left on Cooper Problem?

Don't think so...

I believe you just start with the right hand on the small crimp/sidepull that is slightly up and left from the starting left hand hold of 'The Cooper Problem'.

I'm confused about the direction of this climb. I know it starts with a RH side pull right above the start of CP and a LH sloper, but does it go up the slab from there? I've tried that(unsuccessfully)but it was pretty bad and mossy. I would give it the bomb if that's the case but I thought I'd ask before I did, otherwise that would be unfair.

Graham, it pretty much just climbs straight up from the start holds. It's not a very great climb it's really just one hard move (the first move, LH slap to a good sloper edge).

I was trying Cooper Problem last night and I noticed that the right hand starting crimp has been ripped off. The hold that is left looks to be solid, and it is actually better than before. I did not do the climb, but it might possibly make the problem easier.
