Comments: I would call this an eliminate if you are supposed to top out straight up. I found myself naturally heading out right for the topout... pretty easy finish.

Comments: This is a sick problem. It didn't seem sketchy at all to me... did it with two pads and no spotter.

Comments: Greg,
I've climbed the problem on the right that you're referring to. Start matched on the rail with a heel and do a nice move to a bomber left hand and then up and right to a jug before topping out. I don't think it's on MP, but to me it felt like maybe V2?

Comments: There are some really cool and more challenging variations/eliminates left of the V0 on the overhang.

Comments: There is a really cool problem just left of the V0 that seems like it has been somewhat overlooked. It starts in the undercling and goes out left to the arete where you match and bump to a jug. Felt somewhere in the V1-V2 range to me....

Comments: To me, the obvious way to climb this is without the monster foot ledge. Awesome problem.

Comments: I started this sitting down, matched on the low blocky hold. Really cool little line for sure, should be better after it sees a little more traffic

Comments: V1- ? yikes. the Utah Bouldering guide calls it a V2 which still seems a bit sandbagged to me... I do have a tendon injury though

Comments: I broke the right starting foot today... still goes at about the same grade, maybe a touch harder now.

Comments: Haha definitely, I'm pretty sure the "+" was added to the grade by people who felt the same way.

Comments: I really like these deceptively hard, short problems. Didn't send today, but with better temps and fresh skin I think I just might get 'er.

Comments: I loved this problem. It should definitely be climbed from a sit, makes for a really nice sequence. I personally disagree with the PG-13 rating, it's not all THAT tall and the top out is pretty secure. Classic for the area for sure!

Comments: Great little climb for sure. There's also a V1(ish) stand start just to the right of this problem that finishes on the same top out.

Comments: Haha, definitely not a warm-up for mortals like myself, the first moves felt V4-V5ish and pretty cool, but an appropriate top out was a bit elusive... thanks for the info, Jables.

Comments: In my opinion, this problem compares to the standard V3 (+) on the Redwall at Flagstaff. First two moves are SWEET.

Comments: I've seen this boulder too, my friends and I also did the line you're talking about and another one on the adjacent face. I don't believe it's on MP, but to me it felt about V1, maybe a grade tougher from the low start. Not too bad, a little chossy though for sure. Maybe you should post it, Bob.

Comments: Benningfield calls it a V4 in his guide, but I definitely sent it quicker than I do most 4s. Regardless, it's an awesome line!!
