Fife about to make a large first move.

Description 

The very high problem at the top of the hill, kind of in a small courtyard of problems, opposite Gadgetry. Sit start with small crimps and cramped small feet. Make a powerful move up to the left, traverseto the right around the faint arete, then up and back to the left for the 20+ foot topout. After you grab the small horn the holds are pretty decent, but it's still pretty scary, dramatic, fun and hard.

Location 

At the top of the hill in the area, as you come up the trail it will be on the last of the really high boulders on your right (but you can't see the start while walking up.) The face you climb will be looking back down towards the pond and the horse farm trail.

Protection 

Lots of pads and lots of spotters, although the landing is actually not too bad.

from here i have my hands on the gastone and the REALLY bad right hand crimp behind it.. I went out to the "horn" crimp out left from here and then I was going to head strait up from there.. is this correct?

This line is painful and crimpy, and nicely scary up high.

I screwed up the beta at the top, which makes it really exciting. Two good spotters will make you feel better about the slabby boulder under the arete.

i think i was kinda far right, but i broke a flake off of this and took a fall from the top. my spotter saved my life, and i gave him a good size shiner on his cheek.

Jesse, where was the flake? Above the slopey gaston? Around the arete to the right? Just curious.

yeah pretty far right... does the line go more to the left? the topout above that looked spicy, but it was starting to drizzle. should i be closer to the arete?

julian, i was on two sold crimps right around the corner and then got a super high foot, locked off and reached way up to a smaller crimp, matched and went out right to a really good rail. from there i went right hand to a flake that i kinda under clinged, got super high feet and then it broke. wheres the crux? the climbing over there didnt feel v7? i mean it should have felt kinda like a short and softtt 13.a. but the climbing out right felt a tad soft.

Jesse, sounds like you were off route to the right. The line starts on the face, makes a short traverse to the arete, a couple moves up the arete on good edges and then left onto the face via a slopey gaston. You top out directly above the start.

alright, thanks julian. the line out right feels pretty good. easier, but if you're there (with some pads and spotters) it is worth a look.

I love this climb. It is one of my fav's in the park. However, Iwould not suggest doing it alone with only one pad. It was kind of scary. The highball topout is so classico.

got on this today and made it to the good crimp up high the description I believe calls a "horn"... wicked fun climbing and I think with a couple more sessions it will go

So is the triangle foot block just under Mike's feet in the following photo on or off for this problem?:

I brought someone out there yesterday and wasn't sure what the "official" opinion on using it for a foot was.

The detached triangle block is off.

What a great climb! One of the scariest problems I've ever done, and easy for the grade.

Skip the sit start and you can have fun working the classic moves even if you're weak like I am. Great route.
