Jerry's Kids starts in the tiny cave. A hard sequence off the deck and a crux at mid-height mean there's nowhere to relax. Excellent problem.

Comments: There's a fun sit that climbs into this from the hole on the left. Might be V4, might not be quite that hard.

Comments: I'd be happy to give up ownership of this page to someone more local. I added it a few years back because there were very few problems in this section.

Comments: This thing is super good, but the flakes up higher seem suspect to me. I remember climbing pretty gingerly up there.

Comments: That's always been my understanding. Bryce or someone else who knows the history might have a better idea.

Comments: Not sure what I was intending when I wrote this. It's not accurate as written. I'll tweak it.

BTW, I've always started with a lower right undercling, moved into the higher one, dropped left hand into the horrible sharp hold and then hucked for the lip. Or rather, failed to huck for the lip.

Comments: IDK, Bryce. I think I'd call the original method an eliminate if much easier beta is available. Just because the first folks to try it didn't find the beta doesn't mean it's not there.

Comments: If you can, bring your knee up inside your right hand. Made a huge difference for me. Oh, and go all the way to the jug. The undercling is kind of a sucker hold.

Comments: Entirely possible, Christian. A friend did it and thought it was new and/or unnamed. When I did it, it came together pretty easily despite the terrible, terrible holds for your right hand. Oh, and I definitely didn't do any dynoing as in the description for the V8 variation.

Comments: The beta in that vid is for CRAZY STRONG MOFOS! Normal people do at least two moves before hitting the high right crimp he grabs first.

Comments: I think this is actually to the left of Old People With Soul. It climbs the face left of the offset offwidth feature.

Also, I did a pretty obvious sit start from a crimp on the right side of the arete down low and a left hand sidepull on the face. One long move reaches the flat jugs. Might be V5. I thought the stand was more like mid-range V4.

Comments: There's a line that's basically behind the tree in this photo that goes at maybe V4 from the stand. No idea what the name is.

There's also a kinda thuggy low-ball-ish problem on the right arete seen here. Probably also about V4.

Comments: Rock quality on this line isn't great, which doesn't really distinguish it from the other lines on this side of the boulder.

Comments: there's a sit from the right side of this face that feels harder than V2/3 to me. A crouch start in the middle is more like V1/2 though.
