pimped crimped right hand and slighly undercling left with bad feet to a left hand crimp 2 feet up. Move feet up and match on crimp. Fire up to a VERY VERY VERY small edge with your right and bring your foot out from under the small starting undercling. Then go A L-O-N-G WAY with your left hand to a small crimp. Hard stuff

4 out of 5 stars Info

This prob was an obvious line on a mostly blank section. Many variations have climbed across this section, see "Wallstreet Pull" or "Right Angle" but, "Reef Direct" with it's off routing of the big undercling to the left and the low start with both hands in the tips undercling, is the defining of the V9 grade at Chandler. It is a bad-ass line that is for the finger fit the whole way. It has seen probably 7 or 8 sends and is the gateway for the want to be hard-man in Tulsa. I first did this prob in 95' and it took me the better part of 15 or 20 days of working it to get the FA. good luck and happy crimping!
