Working the start of Phillip's Problem.

This is a great problem located within the Buddha Cave area of Castlewood Canyon. This problem is located just to the right of Sometimes Wet. Sit down start on a large, sloping cobble and crimp. The only way I could get off the ground on this was with a crossed hands start. Throw up to the large incut cobble just right of the start, now hit the lip. Classic!


Follow directions to Sometimes Wet.


Pad, spotter.

I think that Phillips's Problem is that this line was done several years prior to his being aware of the existence of Castlewood Canyon,.
