Grabbin' the flake.


Sit start on the left edge of the 'cave' on a flat sidepull left and a crimp slot crack right.

Make a few hard moves gets your hands to the jug flake. The stand up start from here is V2. Somehow get stood up on top of the flake, then dance up the easy slabby but high topout.


On the left side of the 'cave', locate a juggy flake at 5'. Sit start under it or just grab and go.


Flat landing, high topout, but easy. The chance of a bad fall is very low.

Fun route. All the hard moves are at the start. Once you get over the mantel, you're faced with a simple slab section. It's kind of high but nothing too bad. If you're strong enough to do the first few moves, you have nothing to worry about. 1 pad should be enough to protect a fall.

So, my understanding is the that the standard sit start is from the left undercling crimp and right crimp. Today I did a lower version starting matched on a flat sidepull and then went to the right, then fell into the left undercling crimp, adding two difficult moves to get to the regular sit start. Anyone else done it this way? The sidepull I started on did have chalk on it. Felt much harder than the standard sit start.
