Begin Sloper Chief matched in the horzontal break at 5 feet above the ankle breaking boulder. Move left two one of 3 options: A) left hand sidepull, B) lower left crimp slot, C) upper left crimp slot. Move up with the right hand to the sloper with a good thumb catch. Make your way to the sloping hueco and match in it. Slap the lip and negotiate the delicate topout.
This is one of the harder V5s in the area and a great send if that is near your limit!
Pad on the rock below the start and some spotters to catch you when you fly off the exit moves.

The good thumb catch on the sloper has broken off.

Yeah, the slopey right hand now is indeed aptly named. Been a while since I sent with the thumb catch but that move is definitely harder. Stout V5.

Was there today, and the ankle breaking boulder is not there anymore. FYI. It looked like it had been rolled down the hill.
