After a couple martinis, a couple cigarettes and ...


Begin from a sit and pull a couple tough moves to gain the hueco. Moving off the hueco, make some big moves for the top.
The standing start is V6.


Easily seen from the road, downhill, just before the last campsite. On the huge Rapunzel boulder. Sit-start just right of the tree.

Pretty sure my sends of this problem don't count, since I wasn't wearing anything near as cool as Steve's threads.

Yeah, sends on this only count if you're dressed for the occasion.

Jug on the left is off? Is this climb an eliminate?

Either way that hueco is pretty sweet.

I don't know that it's "off", but you certainly haven't done Clawing At The Walls if you use it.

Regardless, I saw your sequence picture Tim...ok, the shirt is a little stylish, but the shorts don't make the cut. See the Edwards and Crozier photos for proper ascent attire. Buck-up and send like a man, sans the homo-jug.
