The Conundrum has the single hardest move I've ever successfully made on stone. Todd Battey lead the climb and got the crux move first try; once at the top, he belayed myself, Dave Stahl, and Rob Stahl for well over an hour as we all took turns , unsuccessfully , to make the crux move. After the three of us tried many times each, I finally got lucky and stuck it about on my 6th or so try. It's a tall man's problem too, which , I believe , helped Battey and I make the one very difficult move. This is a trad climb on the right side of the Frontier wall.
