gotta love those weird pinches

Some areas require a guide.


This problem is in the shade all day. Once you enter the meadow, hike up and left on slick slabs and over a boulder. This problem starts in cave down and to the right on huge huecos to a difficult throw to a delicate topout.

Just a little history: The original name for this one was Mr. Negative, in the Negative Cave, but Lobster Claw is a good name too. Pete Z did it first, then also me and Scott Leonard. We found it one day out hiking around looking for new problems. FA: Christmas Break 1991/92
