One of the all time great dyno problems. Considered by many to be the best boulder problem in JTree. Start off a large cheatstone (although not necessary), climb jugs up to a blank, vertical headwall with thin crimps, to an all out dyno for a huge jug 20 ft. off the deck. Finishes with a few mildly exciting sloper moves.


bring large nuts!

Reachy! This is going to be a rude surprise if you're under 5'10" or so. At 5'9 with a +2, I can barely get the thin crimp and am playing the piano trying to get onto the better part of it. Maybe my footwork is trash, but plan on some extra trickery if you're short.

Not even close to "the best problem in JT" though. Caveman, Pigpen, and many more are way better than this rig, IMHO.
