Sur La Pointe is a Joel classic. He was all about it at the time and it has a very nice name. It is a challenging and tricky one move wonder dyno from a perfect one pad edge that accommodates eight fingers. Right toe in a small shallow pocket, left foot smear and launch for the sloping lip.
Surprised you only gained a few vertical feet? It is really hard to generate any pull with the hands at all, everything is about leaping with the right toe pocket. It very much helps if you have a new edge on your shoes. I tried this probably 50 times before succeeding.
On a boulder downhill from the Colflesh area proper. The climb will be facing downhill away from you and would be challenging to find without a local.
A pad or two
