Me sticking the crux - but not sending yet. Pho...


Start on a low undercling on the right side of the Knob Goblin' boulder (aka Waterfall Boulder). Move straight up and over the roof, avoiding the arete on the right. Continue through long moves straight up, and top out.

Very fun dynamic movement but somewhat contrived: both the featured water rut to the left and the arete to the right are off.


This problem is in the main area. The Knob Goblin' wall faces you as you walk up the wash from North Rd. PFVP starts on the undercling below the roof and avoids the arete as it moves mostly straight up. (The big side-pull near the arete is definately ON.)


None required: sand landings and not too tall.

Walk off to the right near the trickling waterfall.

Yes, this is a sit-start variation and the arete and face-center (water streak) features are off. The meaning of PFVP is not appropriate for Mountain Project...I'll have to let you know next time we climb together!
