This is the last bolted line on the main wall before the amphitheater. A pop move off the ground will get you started on this quality line which will test your squeezers as well as your crimpers. A pump probably won't get you on this one but a couple of moves just might.

Wide-boy Noun. A male characterized by his cocky charm, petty illicit dealings, and perceived stylish dress sense. Usually having a working class upbringing the wide-boy has replaced the now generally obsolete 'spiv'. Also wideboy. Cf 'spiv'.

Typical Highlands climbing with several good problems separated by rests. Bring your crimping game for the crux, but it isn't over until you can pull the final bulge. Thanks for letting me hop on this one Kipp!
