Pain Grain


Sit-start on holds atop the large scoop feature. Work up and left on small holds and toe/heel hooks to the massive, sharp jug start hold of Pain Grain stand-start. Continue up on sharp holds to the cruxy topout. The sit is so much better than the stand, if you can do the moves just go for the sit.

Stand-start is v5

I noticed a number of ways to fire the start, all of which are powerful. Very aesthetic and core-intensive.
