Solid crimp.


This is the problem up the center of the face of the tree slab. Pretty much everything on the "slab" is a little contrived, but this is almost an independent line.

Start from two good holds near the left-center of the face that are located on the long row of holds that are footholds for the high traverse. Step high and reach a perfect 4-finger edge. It may be a slightly dynamic move for those of you who are shorties, unless you can lock off at your knees. From the edge, move your feet up and hit the top. Mantle to finish.

This is a fun problem, but only worth one star.


Pad is nice.

This was the most classic line I found on my short tour along the cliff. Short but independent and allows you to top out.

Fun top-out problem. You can get down to the left.

For what it's worth...This was once known as the Fire and Ice Simulator. Skip the mid face edge, and go all the way to the top of the rock. There are at least three problems that share the SAME move...it only gets harder as you move the start to the left (west). Further, there is a really good variant that goes to the obvious gaston out left..that one gets harder as you move the start to the right. Thanks for reading. Young Doug.
