Start matched under the roof on a flat crimp. Move out to the ledge, and work obvious holds up and right to a slopey crux. Move left to a crimp, and top out over a bomber ledge.


It is just right of Numero Uno on the Secluded Wall.


A pad and spotter.

Feels just as hard as when I first put it up!

Hey Ryando, there is a direct way to climb this that avoids the crux as you describe it. From the lowest in cut hold, the one the left hand goes to from the flat crimps underneath the roof, I move right hand to the lowest slopey hold, move left foot high on to same shelf that the left hand is on, and lock off with right hand to reach high to the crimps. This is the same crimp that I believe you move leftwards to from the higher sloping rail. This direct way is quite a bit easier than what you describe. You should try it if you're ever back there, and let me know what you think. I'll have to go back (with more skin, sharp!) and try it the way you describe it, what a great boulder this is! Thanks for posting it, man, I really like the problems on this wall and the lovely location.

Brett, I'm glad you enjoy the problems Ternes and I put up here! Thank you for the positive feedback, and now that I look at it, you're right about skipping a move or two on this problem; though I haven't tried it your way yet. There is a gold mine of development going on back here.
