Easy Mantle

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

To the right of Transportation, the large diagonal crack in The Pit, and left of the corner are a number of mantle problems. The most classic is quite easy. Start standing on the good ledge just left of the corner. Ascend using all holds until your right hand is on the good ledge in the middle of the face about 9 feet up. Put your left hand on a good hold slightly left. Turn your right hand fingers in, walk your feet up, and mantle onto a straight right elbow (as shown in the video). If you have a good reach, you should be able to get a good hold on the edge of Transportation. Otherwise other, smaller holds on the face will allow you to stand. The problem also goes one-handed.
