nearing the finish


Stand start on the finish holds of Sigourney Weaver (downhill edge of the lip). Follow the lip up and right for 25 feet to a crux toss to bridge a small gap in the lip. Take a knee bar rest here and then fire out the last 15 feet to top out on the finish of Front Man at the apex of the boulder. A great endurance traverse!

Pad, ground move up with you so it is never a long fall
