This problem is pretty difficult for the grade compared to others of the same grade in the Ibex area. To complicate matters, after you hit the half-way point your landing/falling options are non-existent: i.e. don't fall! X-rated equivalant problem.

The problem starts on a left-facing sidepull that isn't very good. Feet position are critical to utilizing the sidepull. All the other holds are smaller and tougher to use compared to the start. Climb straight up the south face. There are decent top-out holds on this problem.


This problem is located on the south facing side of the boulder. The left-facing sidepull that signals the starting hold is to the left of the V1 starting hold for problem 2. V1.


Good flat landing for the first half of the problem. After that there is danger of smashing yourself on a sub-boulder located to the left of the problem. We used 4+ pads to help protect this problem. Be aware the problem is fairly high.
