"Driftwood" direct V6/7. Also known as t...

Description 

Awesome problem, if you're in shape for serious crimping. Starts on matched crimps at chest height, and gradually eases in difficulty as you go. Upper moves are shared with the left variation.

Location 

Alcove above (to the south of) wounded knee. The problem faces north.

Protection 

Pads/ spotters. At least 2 pads, or one big one (an extra pad folded in half underneath is useful, as the narrow landing shelf slopes away). 2 spotters help, too, as it's possible to tumble backward off the ledge.
