Sticking to the slopers after the first move.


Brilliant movement on slopers and a horizontal rail lead to a tricky topout. Sit start on the left arete using a right hand crimp sidepull and a left foot smeared on the arete. Power up to a sloper, then match before making the crux moves right to the rail. Follow the rail to the arete, grab a hidden sidepull and eye the sidepull jug that will help you topout. A spotter will keep you from rolling down the hill if you blow the top.


Visible from the main trail, this climb is on the first cluster of boulders past the Body Grind cave.

This problem is quite good. Similarly to Gadgetry in terms of quality.

One of the best at Ridgeline.
