janehofweber:Left hand: There is a sweet side-pull crimp on the top-left side of the lip which makes the top out more manageable. Heel hook: I extended my (top out) reach to the final slab hold by placing my right heel next to my right hand on the lip of the boulder, then rocking up and over.
The top out is real! It was my first time falling off a top out in a very long time. Make sure you pad this thing up and have active spotters. A buddy of ours took a nasty fall off the top and hurt his back.
Flat landing area. Lovely stepped ledges take you to the lip. However, the top out is high and slanted. It requires a big finish move for a short (5'4") peep like me. For a guaranteed good time, ensure that the top out is dry and brushed clean of forest debris.
