Rio's Sharp Problem (aka Oil & Water)
|298 page views|
Climbs the face up and left. Sit start with right hand on a big flake, left hand on a sidepull with good feet. Bump left hand up to another sidepull, move right hand onto a sloping hold, and stand up to a painful crimp. Work your feet up and (crux) grab a jug at the lip. Topout.
Really good if you can deal with the sharp crimp.

Definitely a fun little climb. I didn't find the left hand crimp to be overly sharp, especially when compared to plenty of other holds at Pawtuckaway. Fairly easy climbing to a powerful move to the lip.
