  • Description 

    This is about the most terrifying lowball imaginable.

    Start from a sit on the slab and make a big move up and left to crimps. Traverse more or less straight left on small holds to a final big move out left to a juggy flake on the arete. Roll around the corner and stand up to finish.

    There was some chalk on a possible start from the level below, I don't know if it has been done or not, the climbing looks easier with big moves on big holds and a scary landing.


    Traverses the steep wall above The Egg. Starts from a sit on some small edges as far right as possible.


    You could dab on any move on this problem and yet if you fall you could also slide down the slab and drop off the top of Pirelli to the landing below. It may be best to have something wrapped around your waist like a leash to keep you from sliding should you fall.
