Description:

The first significant dynamic boulder problem, done in 1959. Layback on the left hand and dynamically lever to a small fingerhold over the lip with the right hand. Then turn loose the left hold and reach up to a friction pocket.

Tough problem. People seem to have forgotten their brushes (chalk-build up on holds quite accumulated),and the holds are pretty well and polished, but its still more fun to climb on a John Gill testpiece than any human who hasn't can imagine.
