Cheat Grass Pie starts out with some fun compression climbing and finishes up a technical slab.

Sit start with a left hand crimp and a right hand sloper. From there, bump the right up to the sloper on the arete (crux), then bump the left hand up to a sidepull, slap the right again to the next sloper with a thumb-catch, stack a left hand above the right on the crimp, paste a high right heel, and crank up to the small crimp and features which access the jug and topout.


This ascends the East face of Essential Boulder.


A few pads, the landing has a few rocks to the side and behind the problem, but it is actually quite good.

I had completed the stand start this summer and knew the sit would go but opted to wait for cooler temps as the moves are friction-dependent. Anyway, sent the full line today by adding a sit start which involves some fun compression moves on perfect slopers. In my opinion, this increased the problem's grade, and more importantly, the quality.
