BETA PHOTO: The Thin face, there are a couple of problems hidd...


A perfect landing entices one to go for the jug at the top on this thin, technical line with and explosive finish. Good flexability is helpful.

Start from high holds, or low, you choose. Move up into some scoop type holds with edges at the lips and get high feet to reach up to some terribly small holds. Wind up and fire for the jug in the crack below the lip. You might want to scramble around prior to trying this to make sure that the jug is not full of pine needles.


This is the first problem you see and come to as you approach the area. It sits just to the right of the trail and has a large pin tree just to the problems right.
