Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!

Description 

This line is obviously an eliminate, since the top of the boulder is off. That said, it certainly is fun! I'm guessing it's been done before, but I discovered it while nursing an ankle injury and looking for problems close to the ground. The grade is just my opinion... it certianly feels easier than Middle Roadside, which gets v4.

Location 

Sit start on Roadside Arete, move up to the good leaning slots on the arete without gaining the finish jug, then begin traversing left (top of boulder is off) to a sidepull edge, an interesting slopey pocket, a jug, and the high crimps on FPNNA.... From these crimps, you can dyno far left to a jug that is debatably not the top. Keep traversing and either mantle or finish sitting on a left-facing flake.

Protection 

Pad... well, no hold is much higher than 6 ft. You could probably get by without one.
