Tiptoe off the ledge onto the face then back onto the ledge several times until your belayer seems irritated then commit to anything you can grab to make the leg shaking clip. If you make it to the 4th you got it in the bag.

Indeed, Symon demonstrated this to be true today... hard 11c imo. 4th clip is kind of a horror show.
pigsteak said on February 10th, 2013
you mean...dont fall or you die type of horror show;)
Jeff said on March 22nd, 2013
You must be doing it wrong.
dustonian said on March 22nd, 2013
Or perhaps something broke.... just crux moves well above the bolt with a somewhat slabby landing below. Not groundfall or anything, just nice 'n spicy!
Jeff said on March 22nd, 2013
:) I just read the route description and look at Rays pic with the red line. I was way right by the time I went from 3 to 4 and there was a very key left foot jib. No way I could send following the red line!
dustonian said on March 22nd, 2013
Hm... perhaps I missed the "jib", this thing felt like a step up from Giblets! I was really happy I made Symon hang a double draw after watching him sketch through it. I don't know, I always climb bad in the cold though. Super nice climbing in any case!

dustin, I also remember shaking in my boots on this one at 4....
Jeff said on March 23rd, 2013
