From the Maugham short story of the same name. This problem is high, 13 feet of easy climbing to the business and an exciting topout. Characterized by a 3foot banana that looks like it will break. Brett said "the banana flexes", but he always says that.

Descent Options:

walk around right

3 out of 5 stars Banana Flexing

Arden told me we are going to warm up and little did I know he meant for me to highball 11b. Numerous no's and me telling Arden I have no ego. I do it and the finish is dicey. The Banana did not flex.....that much and all men have egos no matter how many times they are humbled.
