Parlier with the FA of "Crucible"

Description 

One of the best boulder problems I have climbed in a long time. I think, in my personal opinion, that this would be world class at any location. A proud 18-20ft line!

Stand start low at the base of the steep, wide arÍte feature (left of where you find boy named sue) around the left backside of the boulder. at the base of the arÍte feature, as it tapers to a low point, find the low left hand crimp rail and lower undercling (check out one of the photos I submitted. I wrote that my foot is inches above the start in the beta photo).

From the start, work directly up the steep wide arÍte using pinches and jugs low, a small undercling/sidepull, then to jugs further up followed by a thin fin pinch arÍte at the top.


-Could be v5 or v6 or whatever. Time and more ascents will tell. Regardless and no matter the grade, this one is a 3-4 star classic for sure.
