Tough link-up by Jacob Padilla

I always thought that Cocktail Sauce(v10) on the Smooth Shrimp boulder, (Buttermilks Main Area, just uphill from Mandala) was a pretty stout problem in itself, but for those who like to up the level a little, how about traversing into it all the way from the left?

Jacob Padilla, a coach and route-setter for City Beach Rock Club, Fremont, wrote to me about this link-up, which he just completed, describing it as, "The ultimate butt-dragger!"

Here he is cruising it ... Nice climbing, Jacob!
