A couple seasons ago a good friend of mine Andrew Spencer put up a new line on the varnished face opposite of Bubble Butt. After working through the stand he spent multiple days on the first move before sending the full line which he named Scare Tactics.
This problem went without a second ascent for quite a while, and not for lack of trying. The thing is hard. Then this video came out. (Skip to around 2:17 for the boulder problem.)
I was surprised to see the name spelled wrong (the correct name is listed in Tom's guidebook) but I was even more surprised to find that Andrew said he had begun from two parallel crimps, rather than an undercling. Had something broken? Was easier beta gleaned? Yesterday I went on a recon mission to find out.
From what I could tell looking at the problem nothing had obviously broken, but there could be subtleties escaping me. It looks as if people are opting to use a decent foot shelf out left and commit to a hard bump with the left hand as opposed to the violent drive by move used on the FA.
I have yet to try either beta, but once the temps drop I am really psyched to put some work into this line. Regardless of how the problem ends up going much respect is due to Andrew for the vision on this beautiful crimpy testpiece.
