Take the Highway

Description 

Start as for Abe's Oddysee, at the lowest point of the overhang on the giant undercling sidepull. Continue straight up passed the jug flakes to a small but decent left hand crimp, do a big pull to gain a perfect crimp out right and another huge pull and slap for the sloper. Pull the lip and finish on the spooky slab.

Surely a neo-Potters' classic! Full value! No refunds!

Location 

Backside of the same boulder as Rummspringa. Walk all the way around, and look for the overhang.

Protection 

Pads. Spotters. Don't fall off the slab (into the tree!)
