Comments: Yeah Aaron, Austin's Seam is great. Seemed super hard but came together quicker than I thought it would. There's word on the street that you did a version that goes straight up somewhere on the seam. Whats the word on that, what holds did you launch from? how hard do you think it is?

And Jay, on Tremor Direct, for me there isn't a move close to as hard as the start move or the move to the crimp at the lip on the direct finish. The moves are probably v3/4 after you match the lip, and the actual ... more >>

Comments: Did the direct version yesterday. Doesn't really add much difficulty once you figure it out. I matched above the crimp at the lip on two good slopers and moved up to a gaston dish with the right hand. Slap across to a flat sloper with the left and pop right to a good sloping dish just left of the jug on Decreased Sex Drive. Top out easily on good flat slopers above.

Comments: Fun problem! A couple set up moves R from the start of Domino lead to a big move to a pocket with R hand and a sweet cross through move to a jug pinch with the L. Move to R facing sidepull crimp and hit R facing jug gaston with L hand. Top out is cake compared to Domino...easily done while soaking wet. Sit start without the traverse on the pinch jug is probably V4/5, but the traverse is worthy.

EDIT:
Apparently Knight Takes the higher more difficult traverse right to the top out of the next pro... more >>

Comments: Went out and did this thing yesterday. Started sit/squat down in the hole under the arete with a left hand on the arete and right on a pebble crimp. Work up the slopers on the arete and aim for an obvious 2 pebble pinch for your right hand on the face near the top. Hold the compression, hope none of the pebbles underfoot break, and slap the good slopers at the lip.

Probably want a good spot and at least 2-3 good sized pads to fill holes and pad the rock next to the arete.

Comments: Balancey and technical on the initial arete, good crimps are there...just not where you expect them. The transition onto the face is exciting and fun if you stay low and don't mantle the leafy ledge. I bailed right to the arete at the the top and still found topping out a struggle. I'll have to go straight up next time.

Comments: After initial layback, cool committing mantle move over less than stellar gear. Almost got suckered out left to what I think is Boozooka below the bulge 15ft below the bolt, but glad I bailed right to the jug flakes on Chunks Direct before traversing back to gain the the bolt.

Could be a cool var to go left and avoid the flakes?

Comments: Top moves are definitely worth doing! Super cool compression moves way off the deck. Brush it off and have your friends bring some pads.
