Snowy topouts in January


Really fun traverse with good landings and interesting moves. This problem rates two stars for sure, although three stars could probably be justified - by Sanitas standards, this is a classic problem.

Start on the far right side of the Fin and do V1 moves left on good holds with cruddy feet. After 10-12 feet you will reach a jug and a decent pseudo-rest. Then launch through the crux - solid V2 moves, more aesthetic the higher you go (which still leaves your feet only 3 feet off the ground). After the crux, there is a stretch of cool underclinging before topping out on juggy holds (V0).

If you are looking for a very safe, fun, and continuous V2 boulder problem, this one is hard to beat.


A spotter is always recommended. This is a very safe problem, however.
