Pulled a black widow out of the starting undercling on this some years back. I've checked dark holds at Stoney much more carefully ever since.

Great problem. My buddy and I matched on the low hand hold but had our feet in stemming position. Was really hard to find the right spot to plant the right foot, not to mention get the hands situated properly on that first hold. Once everything was in the right place, pretty good position to throw for the right hand hold above.

Excellent movement throughout. Big features but involves a couple big throws. Core dependent and fairly overhung. Fun finish once you find the sweet spot past the shelf.
