Kris setting up for the big move on Standard Varia...


Start just to the left of "The Standard." Crimp wicked iron bands up and right to the higher topout. Press it out and brush yo' shoulders off.


Just to the left of "The Standard" on "The Comet Boulder" in the Maze area.


A pad would be advised.

So the description for this route is actually for Standard Deviation. Standard Variation starts as per the Standard, but finishes with the big move to the top.

Going straight to the top actually felt easier than pressing it out on slopers on Standard.
