Borson's Pinch

Location: 
Berkeley Boulders
Area: 
Indian Rock
Formation: 
The Pit

Borson's Pinch is a classic eliminate problem just slightly right of the Far Left Watercourse, to the right of the chimney that splits the back of The Pit. It starts with the right hand on the one good hold on that section of rock, the same hold used for Far Left Watercourse. The left hand performs the distinctive inverted pinch on a small cube-shaped hold (as shown in the video.) The right foot steps right to a small knob, and the left foot to a small hold on the face. Reach up and right to the sharp, broken edge known as The Smile. Step up and reach with the left to the good hold above called The Bun. Exit up to the large circular hole. Descend left, down the chimney.
