Comments: Free soloed on-sight on July 4, 1998 at age 21. Took me a while to commit to the crux but it felt clean once I did. Later that night in the Awhanee Meadows I made out with two girls from Alabama who were rolling on ecstasy. Good times.

Comments: Great problem. The move out right to the gaston is thuggy and shouldery goodness. Hard not to feel powerful doing this one, but just look out for a bit of choss up high.

Comments: Always seemed like V8 to me but I did it before the chipped hold appeared. And it did just appear one day as the obvious result of very aggressive "cleaning." It's the high edge above pockets, what some people are describing here as the "crux crimp." Lol. It's just not the same problem with that hold because the drop knee or deep flag one gets without it is a thing of beauty.

Comments: It used to be soft at the grade, but then the first right crimp after the threads broke a bit and this makes releasing the knee bar harder.

Comments: That problem to the right is cool but I can't remember much about it. It's been twelve years. Honestly, I called this problem Big Arete because that's what a couple friends and myself called it and that name is fairly descriptive. At the time not many people had gone up there but to be honest I have no idea what it is "supposed" to be called.
