Floor Pie (extended start)

Description 

Start back in the left side of the roof with both hands in a long slot. Make big moves out the roof using the left arÍte until you can throw for the scoop at the lip, match and top out easily. Powerful and awesome, a Priest Draw classic.

Starting from the very back of the roof on jugs and climbing into the slot is harder (V9?)

Location 

On the far left side of Floor Pie Roof.

Protection 

Pads recommended because of backslap potential. A spotter is highly recommended, it is possible to swing WAY out at the end of this problem and fly down the hill if you aren't careful.

For my money I think this is one of the coolest problems at the Draw. Once it clicks you'll send everytime. The tree is off! I find it easier than Anorexic, but harder than Twister just to its right, also a very cool problem.

I agree, it's one of the coolest problems at the draw, but let's be honest, it's only about V4 or 5 at the hardest. Sending Floor Pie is not the equivalent of 5.13a, more like 12a. From the skirt is a different story.

That is no bueno. The tree against the rock was part of the beauty of that spot. Any attempt to add to Priest Draw is really just taking away from Priest Draw. Everything has been done already.

There was a 4 ft stump(not a tree)..already cut..that I removed from blocking the arete. Now you can climb the low left arete dab free. Many open Projects exist at the draw

OK...everything GOOD has been done. Every piece of rock has been studied for it's potential. Hacking away at established spots, such as the Plaque Wall, Puzzle Box, Wife Beater and Floor Pie, in an attempt to make it safer, cleaner, to add a move, avoid the dab..etc, isn't an improvement, it is a disrespect to the land and the one's that established the areas with minimal impact. I don't like it when I show up at places I've been dozens of times and see that someone has selfishly changed it by smashing and rolling some rocks, or removing a tree. I'm not saying you did all those things Matt(I know that tree was already mutilated)....just saying it's been happening...and it is not a good trend for Priest Draw.

Have to agree with Colin, one only has to look at the ever worsening landing to Wifebeater to see the damage that "modifying" or altering the area can cause. Years ago the landing, while terraced, was at least flat, now its off kilter and with continuing erosion, less stable and dangerous. Would have been much better if the original blocks had been left where they were. Established areas like the draw are not in need of ongoing modification.
