Brian's Project V8 7B  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Buttermilk Stem Boulder
Sit/squat start far right on an ok left hand crimp and a miserable right hand incut. Paste your left foot on a good hold and work up the hanging arete via slopers and heel hooks. Once you get the good left hand pinch reset your feet and make a big move to the good sloper directly above your head. Top out from here on slopers to easy slab. Doing just the finishing moves of this problem deserves a V4 I think....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
