A great problem with distinctive moves. Start with undercling and a toe-cam (if tall enough) and make the long reach to unlikely slopers. Keep your feet on and toss for the jug.
Please clean your tick marks or do not use them at all!
Clean fall. Downclimb the pine tree, but be gentle!

Cool problem, and unique! The lunge to the slopers is maybe a bit easier if you're above 6'1" or so. Certainly feels easier than the sucker problem, that I still can't figure out.. ?

The Sucker problem is its own unique weirdness. I'm pretty sure most people send Charles before the Sucker, but I think the moves on Charles are ultimately more challenging. The Sucker is a right of passage.

I may be biased, but i think Charles in Charge is deserving of more stars...Combined with Gun Shy and the Moonstone this little zone rules!

This was absolutely one of my favorites during my Prescott years. Probably have done it hundreds of times. I always matched on the slopey crimp dish, followed by a pseudo dyno! Classic body locking.

What a trip seeing all this Groom beta. Takes me back. Who did the FA of this rad problem anyway?

I can't reach the crimp from the heel toe...so I've only done this problem once. Much harder I believe. Looks like a path with the heel/toe.
